New medical complex planned for Pearland Parkway
University General Health System Inc. announced it is acquiring 31 acres of undeveloped land to establish a multi-purpose medical complex on Pearland Parkway in Pearland.
According to a press release, the company is a diversified, integrated multi-specialty healthcare delivery system. It is purchasing the land from Musgrave-Grohman, an Abilene-based real estate developer.
The acquisitions are subject to customary closing conditions, including a $20 million financing commitment for the hospital portion of the complex.
The Pearland complex is planned to include a 50-bed general acute care hospital, a full-service 10-bed emergency room, an eight-bed intensive care unit, four operating rooms, and an endoscopy and cardiac catheter lab. A 50,000-square-foot medical office building is planned for construction adjacent to the hospital.
In addition, a 42-unit memory care facility will be constructed to complement University General's 80-unit Trinity Oaks senior living community on Pearland Parkway.
Construction is expected to begin in 2013.
"The new medical complex will be named University General Hospital-Pearland," said Donald Sapaugh, president of University General Health Care System, in the press release. "City leaders have been very supportive in working with us to design the first general acute care hospital in Pearland, and we are excited about the opportunity to provide the citizens of Pearland first-class acute care in a five-star environment."
The University General Health System corporate offices are at 7501 Fannin St., Houston.
