Kelsey-Seybold, a multispecialty group practice with more than 500 physicians and allied health professionals practicing at 26 locations in the Greater Houston area, has announced plans to build a new 22,000-square foot clinic on North Loop 610 near its intersection with U.S. 290.
The Kelsey-Seybold-Greater Heights clinic, opening this November, will occupy the fourth floor of the Physician Specialty Center at 1900 N. Loop W. It will be Kelsey-Seybold's sixth new location to open in 2021, according to a news release.
The Greater Heights clinic has room for up to 10 providers offering comprehensive primary care for adults. Patients will have access to an on-site pharmacy, laboratory, X-ray and other diagnostic testing services.
The referral network of Kelsey-Seybold specialists with offices at neighboring clinics includes River Oaks, Tanglewood, Memorial City and the newly announced 125,000-square foot Memorial Villages, which will open in 2022.
"Providing convenient services in more established residential neighborhoods is a priority for our growth strategy," Nicholas Ro, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic's chief legal and strategic planning officer, said in the release. "Our new Greater Heights clinic, conveniently located near the intersection of two major thoroughfares, will close the gap for nearly 150,000 potential patients who previously had to travel outside their community to access a Kelsey-Seybold location."
John Lyle, senior vice president of operations for Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, said more accessibility is key to providing their model of care to more people.
“A few months from now, we'll be looking forward to greeting new and current patients at our Greater Heights clinic,” Lyle said.
The upcoming Greater Heights location was designed by architects at Powers Brown Architecture. Gamma Construction is the general contractor.
According to LoopNet.com, there is 9,882 square feet of space still available in the building on the first, third and fifth floors. Originally built in 1980, the six-story Heights Health Tower, as it is referred to on LoopNet, was renovated in 2014. There are 64 surface parking spaces and 339 covered parking spaces.
Other tenants include Blue Fish Pediatrics Greater Heights and Solis Mammography Greater Heights.
