Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Announces New Women-Focused Location in Rice Village

New clinic brings comprehensive, multi-specialty services together, delivering convenient access to healthcare for women.

HOUSTON (Aug. 17, 2023) - Kelsey-Seybold Clinic announced plans today to build a 15,000-square-foot clinic in the historic Rice Village District shopping center. Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Rice Village will open in early 2024 at 2414 University Blvd., Suite 200, Houston. This location will replace Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Woman's Center on Fannin Street.

"Prioritizing the healthcare needs of our patients and improving the convenience of accessing that care remains a top priority for us,” said Tony Lin, M.D., CEO and chairman, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “Our Rice Village Clinic will focus on the unique healthcare needs of women and brings together medical specialists focused on delivering comprehensive care for women under one roof."

Rice Village Clinic will be on the second level adjacent to, and accessible from, the Rice Village parking garage. The clinic will initially have up to six women’s health providers specializing in Gynecology, OB/GYN, and Urology, with plans to add specialists in Dermatology and Cosmetic Dermatology.

"We are thrilled to join the Rice Village community and offer a distinctive experience specifically tailored to female patients,” said Brinda Springfield, senior director of ambulatory clinics, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “Rice Village Clinic will provide an array of women’s health specialties and services that will cater to women of all age groups."

Rice Village Clinic will focus on making care more convenient for women and continue the legacy of excellence established by Kelsey-Seybold’s Woman’s Center OB/GYN providers. Patients will have access to on-site diagnostic services, including laboratory and ultrasound, and an extensive referral network of Kelsey-Seybold specialists with offices at neighboring clinics, including West University Clinic, Spencer R. Berthelsen Main Campus, Downtown Clinic, Greater Heights, and River Oaks Clinic.

"Women's health requires an individual approach to care, and it's the type of care our women's health providers have delivered for decades," said Kenneth Janis, M.H.A./M.B.A., chief operating officer of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. "Rice Village Clinic will make it easier for women to access this specialized care, and we look forward to welcoming current and new patients here"
