PRLog - June 5, 2014 - HOUSTON -- Groundbreaking on the new 470,000 square foot hospital in The Woodlands, which will be built at the intersection of TX 242 and I-45, is expected in early 2015, with the hospital to be completed in 2017. Construction includes a 135,000 square foot medical building, which will open in late 2015.
"Houston Methodist has served the greater Houston community for almost 100 years," said Marc Boom, M.D., President and CEO of Houston Methodist. "We are excited to bring our long history of leading medicine and excellent patient care to the residents of The Woodlands."

The $328 million campus will be modeled after the Houston Methodist West Hospital near Katy.
