UT Physicians announces plans for new health center in Cinco Ranch
HOUSTON-(Dec. 7, 2011)- UT Physicians, the medical practice of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School, will host a groundbreaking ceremony for its newest health center at 10 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 8, at 23923 Cinco Ranch Blvd.
Slated to open in the late spring of 2012, UT Physicians at Cinco Ranch will offer primary and specialty care for children, adolescents and adults.
“UT Physicians at Cinco Ranch will bring world-renowned health care to Cinco Ranch and the surrounding communities,” said Andrew Casas, vice president and chief operating officer of UT Physicians. “Our primary and specialty care doctors will provide unparalleled care for patients of all ages in Cinco Ranch and surrounding areas in a convenient location right in their neighborhood.”
The two-story, 11,000-square-foot clinic represents UT Physicians’ continued commitment to provide the most comprehensive, high-quality and personalized medical care in the community.
“We are very pleased to announce this expansion to serve our neighbors in the Cinco Ranch/Katy area,” said Giuseppe Colasurdo, M.D., president ad interim of UTHealth and dean of the UTHealth Medical School. “This growth of UT Physicians follows our latest location in Bayshore to serve the regions of Clear Lake and Pasadena. Our goals are to bring the medical expertise of the UTHealth Medical School to our neighboring Houston communities and to work closely with the local physicians to provide continuity of the best patient care.”
UT Physicians, one of Houston’s largest physician practices, also offers community-based medical care at its flagship location in the Texas Medical Center and at health centers throughout the Houston area, including Bellaire and in Missouri City at Sienna Plantation. The team of internationally recognized medical experts includes more than 1,000 doctors certified in 80 medical specialties.
UT Physicians at Cinco Ranch will manage health care needs for people of all ages - from infants to the elderly. The health care team will provide a range of services from routine wellness exams and care for common illnesses to highly-specialized treatments for complex medical conditions. The clinic will be connected with the entire UT Physicians practice to offer patients a quick turnaround when referred by their primary care doctor to a specialist. The health center also will utilize a secure Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system to ensure that each doctor has access to a patient’s complete history, increasing patient safety and preventing duplication of diagnostic tests.
“We look forward to becoming part of the Cinco Ranch community, and when we open our doors next year, we hope many area residents will decide to make UT Physicians at Cinco Ranch their health care home,” Casas said.
