"Clinical growth and expansion require an infrastructure that can support the level of care and service patients expect from Kelsey-Seybold.

This facility will operate 24/7 with potential for more than 600 full-time employees."The Kelsey-Seybold leadership team evaluated several areas in Texas and determined that the College Station community could support our employment requirements. It is also a desirable place to live and work within a reasonable distance from the Greater Houston area, as well as other metropolitan areas, should we decide to expand," said Nicholas Ro, Chief Legal and Strategic Planning Officer, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. "Kelsey-Seybold's new Contact Center in College Station will give our group the ability to sustain our growth plans."In addition to Contact Center employees, some space has been allocated for Facilities Management, Information Technology, and Human Resources.
