Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Webster, TX - Jan 27, 2017 - Bay Area Regional Medical Center (Bay Area Regional) and Medistar Corporation (Medistar) announced today the development of a new 60,000 square foot medical office building near the intersection of East Medical Center Blvd. and Highway 3 in Webster, Texas.
The building will support the continued growth and active expansion of Bay Area Regional, which recently became the first and only hospital in Houston and only the fifth in Texas to achieve Chest Pain Center Accreditation with PCI and Resuscitation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC).
This new medical office building will provide exceptional convenience and further enhance Bay Area Regional’s position as a medical destination of choice for patients and providers.
The new MOB also will complement the services provided for the community by PAM Bay Area Rehabilitation Hospital, which is operated by Post Acute Medical, LLC. Featuring 45 private rooms, this modern inpatient rehabilitation facility was developed in 2015 by Medistar.
Monzer Hourani, Founder and CEO of Medistar, said, “This new medical office building will provide exceptional convenience and further enhance Bay Area Regional’s position as a medical destination of choice for patients and providers.” The project is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2017.
Also in the Webster area, Medistar is developing a new 70-bed skilled nursing facility to further complement the rapid growth of Bay Area Regional, which Medistar is currently expanding from 104 to 191 total beds.
