Kelsey-Seybold Opens Newly Expanded Fort Bend Campus

Fort Bend Medical and Diagnostic Center is renamed Fort Bend Campus with the opening of new cancer center and addition of new specialties and services

HOUSTON (April 15, 2024) – Kelsey-Seybold Clinic has officially opened the expanded Fort Bend Medical and Diagnostic Center, which includes a renovation of the existing building and a second, 135,000-square-foot building. The renovation and new construction expands current specialty care services, adding a cancer center, shelled space for a future ambulatory surgery center (ASC), and enough space between the two buildings for a total of 75 practicing providers. As part of this transformational milestone, Fort Bend Medical and Diagnostic Center is renamed Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Fort Bend Campus.

“We're incredibly excited to offer even more personalized care to our patients, right in their own community,” said Tony Lin, M.D., chairman and CEO of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. "With cancer services, advanced diagnostics, specialized care, and plans for additional surgical options, we're making it easier than ever for individuals and families to access the care they need, where and when they need it most.”

The new cancer center offers a full complement of cancer services, including diagnostic and treatment options, infusion therapy and radiation oncology. The ASC, with plans to be operational in 2025, will expand access to surgical care in Fort Bend County and Southwest Harris County with four operating rooms, three endoscopy suites and one procedure room to support interventional pain management and interventional radiology services.

"By bringing top-tier specialty care right to the doorstep of Fort Bend and Harris County residents and professionals, our Fort Bend Campus will significantly shorten the distance between patients and essential health care services," remarked Kenneth Janis, M.H.A./M.B.A., chief operating officer of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. "With this new facility, we're limiting the need for trips to the medical center, ensuring that patients in this vibrant community have swift access to the care they deserve. We are thrilled that Fort Bend Campus is opening its doors to serve the community with the compassionate excellence our team is known for."

The original building and the new building are connected through a first-floor interior walkway, with a new parking garage situated directly behind the new addition.

Fort Bend Campus opens with a capacity to add more than 35 providers offering medical services in a range of specialties. Patients now have expanded access to comprehensive adult and pediatric primary and specialty care, with added capacity in anesthesiology, orthopedic sports medicine, podiatry, orthopedic surgery, palliative care, spine, pain management, cardiology, pulmonary, urology, otolaryngology (ENT), audiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, ophthalmology/optometry and hematology/oncology.

Fort Bend Campus continues to offer a robust complement of ancillary services, today adding an expansion of laboratory and diagnostic imaging services — including two MRI machines, one new CT machine, with space for an additional CT, 3D mammography, DEXA, ultrasound, X-ray and nuclear medicine imaging.

The opening of Fort Bend Campus follows other recent announcements in this region including recently opened Stafford and Eldridge Clinics, the planned opening of a clinic in Rosenberg, as well as an established clinic in Sienna. These new locations are all part of a regional strategy to make care more convenient and accessible to people where they live and work.
