The Woodlands Outpatient Building opens

As the only dedicated pediatric hospital north of Houston, Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands Outpatient Building and hospital –scheduled to open in April 2017 –will serve children and families in The Woodlands, Kingwood, Conroe, Spring, Magnolia, Humble and communities in surrounding areas.

“On any given day, there are 150 children from these communities who receive care at the Texas Children’s Hospital medical center campus, which is 35, 40, 50 miles or more from their homes,” said Michelle Riley-Brown, president of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands and executive vice president of Texas Children’s Hospital. “Estimates indicate that there are about 380,000 children and adolescents in this area right now, and every one of them needs and deserves the best medical care.”


Designed with a “spirit of the woods” theme to incorporate the lush, woodsy landscape that surrounds it, the new Outpatient Building is home to many specialized services and clinics, including cardiology, sports medicine, neurology, hematology/oncology.

The Outpatient Building will be connected to the hospital on the first and second floors and offers a fresh, kid-friendly environment to families seeking the best pediatric care for their children. A state-of-the-art sports physical therapy gym is on the first floor, check-in and check-out stations resembling a child’s clubhouse are at the entrance of each clinic, and spacious exam rooms and provider work stations line many of the building’s halls.

“We are in The Woodlands to make sure we take care of all of the kids who need our care,” said Texas Children’s President and CEO Mark Wallace.
