Sugar Land Hospital began building out the sixth floor of its Main Pavilion, adding 56 beds and improving the hospital’s ability to meet the volume and needs of patients from Fort Bend and surrounding areas.
The floor will be dedicated to orthopedic and neurosurgery patients and will include a gym and rehabilitation equipment to accommodate patients who require physical therapy following a procedure. Construction is expected to be complete in the fall.
“The build-out of our sixth floor allows us to expand and provide a dedicated area for patients in two of our fastest growing service lines,” says Chris Siebenaler, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital CEO. “Investments like this further our commitment to the community—to provide much-needed services close to home.”
Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is also adding eight intensive care unit (ICU) beds in its Sweetwater Pavilion. This redesigned space will include the flexibility to “swing” from ICU to regular medical-surgical beds as needed.
“As we’ve added a wide range of services that were previously available only in the Texas Medical Center, we’ve continued to maintain our focus on patient care and safety at the bedside,” said Janet Leatherwood, Chief Nursing Officer. “The nurse to patient ratio is an important component in providing that level of outstanding care and service.”
