Kelsey-Seybold Announces New Clinic in Baytown

New clinic will expand access to coordinated, evidence-based care for East Harris and West Chambers County Residents

HOUSTON (June 27, 2018) – Kelsey-Seybold Clinic announced plans today to build an 11,000-square-foot primary care clinic in Baytown. Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Baytown will be located at 6340 Garth Road in Baytown, at the Baytown Shops retail center, less than one mile south of Interstate 10, anchored by H-E-B. The new Baytown Clinic represents a $2.5 million investment by Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, with enough room for up to six providers, offering comprehensive care for adults and children.

“We have known for some time that we wanted to expand our presence on the east side of the Greater Houston area, and with the ever-growing communities in and around Baytown, it was time for us to grow here, too,” said Tony Lin, M.D., F.H.M., chairman and managing director of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “We are looking forward to bringing our model of coordinated, evidence-based care to the community here and serving new and existing patients living in the Baytown and surrounding areas.”

The new Baytown Clinic will expand access to coordinated, evidence-based care in an area that is experiencing great growth, especially in the communities just north of I-10. Patients will have access to on-site laboratory and X-ray, as well as an extensive referral network for various Kelsey-Seybold specialists with offices at neighboring clinics in Pasadena, Summer Creek (Humble), and Clear Lake.

“We are looking forward to serving the families and employers in the Baytown area. Future growth is set to outpace what we’ve seen so far, mainly due to the expansion of the oil, gas, and chemical industries in the region,” said Stuart Cayer, director of Ambulatory Care in Operations, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “We’re looking forward to establishing relationships with new patients and their families as this area continues to expand.”

The new Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Baytown location was designed by architects at Powers Brown Architecture. A general contractor has not yet been selected for this project.
