PEARLAND - Three hospitals have been announced since October 2012, according to the Pearland Economic Development Corp.

Memorial Hermann Health System is the latest agency to announce plans to build a local medical campus. The $80 million project will include an acute care hospital and an outpatient convenient care center. The project will be built on 40 acres on the southbound side of Texas 288 near FM 518.

The campus' 64-bed hospital will include an intensive care unit, operating rooms, cardiac catheterization labs, medical/surgical units, women's care and neonatology services. The hospital will have the capacity to be expanded to a 128-bed facility.

The other hospital projects include a $71 million 30-bed, 144,000-sf acute care HCA hospital at Texas 288 and Shadow Creek Pkwy. The facility is expected to open in January 2015.

University General Hospital has announced plans to construct a 50-bed acute care hospital on Pearland Pkwy. This hospital will be part of a multipurpose medical complex development that also will include a 50,000-sf medical office building and a 42-unit memory care facility to complement University General's 80-unit Trinity Oaks senior living community on Pearland Pkwy.

In addition to the hospitals coming to the area, Pearland has been gaining a number of other medical facilities.

Kelsey-Seybold is currently building a four-story, $36 million administrative headquarters on an 18-acre site at Kirby Dr. and Shadow Creek Pkwy.

Additionally, Pearland Surgery Center recently completed a three-story medical office building at 15015 Kirby Dr., and Texas Children's Hospital has located pediatrics and OB/GYN facilities next door to each other on Broadway.
