Our History: 2010 - 2013
In 2010, Kelsey-Seybold opened two new locations: Shadow Creek Ranch in Pearland and Cinco Ranch in Katy.
Also in 2010, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic topped the list of Texas physicians nationally recognized for excellence in diabetes care when 72 Kelsey-Seybold physicians achieved the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s (NCQA) highest level of certification for excellence in diabetes care.
This same year, Kelsey-Seybold completed its conversion from paper records to an electronic medical record (EMR) system. In addition to fostering effective care coordination, Kelsey-Seybold’s EMR enables after-hours access and interfaces with hospital EMRs and clinical decision support, which means relevant information about treatments, medications, and medical history pops up on the screen when the patient is entered into the system.
The first quarter marked three new beginnings for Kelsey-Seybold. We opened our 13th pharmacy in downtown Houston in January, relocated our downtown clinic location to The Shops at Houston Center 4, and opened our Kelsey-Seybold Sleep Center.
In June, 16 Kelsey-Seybold Clinic locations were named Level 3 Medical Homes, a prestigious national designation, by The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
In December, 45 Kelsey-Seybold physicians were recognized for providing outstanding cardiovascular and stroke care by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) Heart/Stroke Recognition Program. Kelsey-Seybold physicians account for nearly half of all NCQA-recognized heart/stroke physicians in the state of Texas.
Also in 2011, Vice President of Corporate Finance John Sperry and Gastroenterologist Dr. John Hughes were inducted as Kelsey-Seybold fellows, Kelsey-Seybold’s model of coordinated care was featured in the New York Times, and the City of Houston was welcomed as a KelseyCare powered by Cigna client.
