Pearland Medical Center

HCA Gulf Coast Division announced today that it is building a 30-bed, acute care hospital in Pearland at the southwest intersection of Highway 288 and County Road 2234 (Shadow Creek Parkway). Pearland Medical Center will be built on the 48-acre site that is currently home to a full-service, freestanding  24-hour emergency department,  imaging center  and a 3-story, 80,000 square-foot medical office building. 

“We are excited to expand our presence in Pearland with a state of the art hospital that will allow the citizens of that community to receive quality healthcare close to home,” said Maura Walsh, President of HCA Gulf Coast Division.

Pearland Medical Center will be a 144,000 square-foot, $71 million facility featuring surgical suites, medical/surgical beds, intensive care beds, an emergency department, and an imaging department that will include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), catheterization lab, echocardiogram testing, and nuclear medicine modalities. The hospital’s women’s services will provide digital mammography, labor and delivery suites, cesarean section operating rooms and a newborn nursery. Pearland Medical Center will be designed with the future growth of the community in mind with plans allowing for incremental expansion to meet the needs of the community.

“HCA Gulf Coast Division is delivering the right care at the right time to our residents in their own neighborhood,” said Tom Reid, Pearland Mayor. “HCA is fulfilling a need to provide people with highly technological, high quality healthcare within the community.”

 “Pearland Medical Center will benefit the local economy creating jobs in construction service as well as jobs in healthcare and its supporting industries,” said Matt Buchanan, President of the Pearland Economic Development Corporation.  “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.”

The ground breaking for Pearland Medical Center is scheduled for 2013 with project completion by the end of 2014.
