Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital Celebrates First Anniversary of Opening with Plans for Expansion
Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital is celebrating its first year of delivering high-level services to the community with plans to expand. The recently approved expansion will develop empty space already built on the Cypress campus.
“We’ve seen amazing growth in the hospital’s first year of operation and we are dedicated to continuing to provide the community with the excellent care they have come to expect from us. I am proud that the community has embraced us as a trusted care provider,” said Heath Rushing, Senior Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Cypress.
The nearly $25 million expansion will add 24 licensed beds, including Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds, as well as an additional catheterization lab for heart procedures and endoscopy suite for gastrointestinal procedures. Since opening March 31, 2017, the 81-bed facility has added multiple services, including a high-risk pregnancy center, Memorial Hermann Wound Care, robotic surgery capabilities, and occupational medicine services for companies in the region. The hospital now offers services provided by 480 affiliated physicians spanning 40 specialties.
In addition to the expansion project, Memorial Hermann Cypress has also started its journey toward becoming a designated Level III trauma center and Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
“It takes time to demonstrate the consistent, high-quality care offered at the hospital needed to receive these designations. We feel confident that we will show the state that we can provide remarkable care to seriously injured and ill patients and we are confident that we will receive recognition for both our trauma center and our NICU,” said Jessica Rivas, Vice President of Operations at Memorial Hermann Cypress.
The expansion project will roll out over the course of next year and is expected to be finalized by summer 2019.
