The new facility’s imaging department will offer magnetic resonance imaging, computerised tomography, catheterisation lab, echocardiogram testing, and nuclear medicine modalities.

The hospital will offer women’s services such as labour and delivery suites, caesarean section operating rooms, digital mammography and an infant nursery.

The project is expected to be completed by 2014 with plans allowing for incremental expansion to meet the increasing needs of the community, according to the hospital.

Pearland Economic Development Corporation president Matt Buchanan said Pearland Medical Center will benefit the local economy, creating jobs in construction service and in healthcare and its supporting industries.

"It’s been a desire of our growing community for several years, and we’re very excited that HCA has chosen this site to build a hospital," Buchanan added.

Pearland Medical Center will be built on a 48-acre site which presently accommodates an emergency department, imaging centre and 80,000ft² medical office building.
