Houston Methodist Hospital, which has a Sugar Land location at 16555 Southwest Fwy., is partnering with national technology-powered primary care organization One Medical to deliver primary care services in the Houston metro area, according to a Sept. 30 news release from One Medical.

According to the news release, Houston Methodist patients will be able to utilize One Medical’s specialists, ambulatory facilities and hospitals as a result of the partnership.

“Partnering with One Medical is a great opportunity for Houston Methodist and for the community,” Houston Methodist president and CEO Marc Boom said. “We share a vision to provide outstanding care to our community and to transform health care—while always putting the patient first. This new partnership helps advance our important goal of expanding the reach of our primary care.”

One Medical’s Houston location will be its 17th nationwide and second Texas-area location. The membership model would give patients daily on-demand access to the organization’s telehealth services and virtual medical team in coordination with their care at Houston Methodist, and also give patients the option to schedule in-person visits.
