US-based Memorial Hermann Health System is planning to construct a new medical campus in Cypress, Texas, with an investment of approximately $168m.

The new campus and an 80-bed hospital will be built on a 32-acre site and Phase I of the construction is expected to start in early 2015.

Memorial Hermann Health System president and CEO Dan Wolterman said the board’s approval of the new campus signals the health system’s commitment to provide residents in the Cypress area with the same quality and safe patient care throughout the Houston region.

"We recognise that as the community continues to grow, so will their health needs."

Wolterman said: "We recognise that as the community continues to grow, so will their health needs.

"When this campus is completed, residents in the Cypress community will have immediate access to high-quality and safe patient care, as well as advanced services that only a clinically-integrated, comprehensive health system can deliver."

The new campus is being built to accommodate the needs of area’s current population of roughly 355,000 residents, which is expected to grow over the next decade.

Hermann plans to complete Phase I by early 2016, which will include an emergency centre and a medical office building. These will offer primary care and ambulatory services.

The crucial Phase II includes the construction of an 80-bed, acute care hospital, which is expected to be completed in 2017.

The hospital will comprise eight operating rooms, a 16-bed intensive care unit, a neonatal intensive care unit and a cardiac catheterisation lab.

The organisation also plans to build a medical campus in Pearland, featuring a 64-bed hospital, as well as expansions at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Centre, Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital.
