SUGAR LAND—(October 27, 2011)—Earlier this year, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital began building out the sixth floor of its Main Pavilion, adding 56 beds and improving the hospital’s ability to meet the volume and needs of patients from Fort Bend and surrounding areas.
The floor is dedicated to orthopedic and neurosurgery patients and includes a gym and rehabilitation equipment to accommodate patients who require physical therapy following a procedure. On October 24, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital opened 20 beds and the remaining 36 beds will open based upon the needs of our community.
“The build-out of our sixth floor allows us to expand and provide a dedicated area for patients in two of our fastest growing service lines—neurosurgery and orthopedics,” says Chris Siebenaler, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital CEO. “Investments like this further our commitment to the community—to provide leading-edge services close to home.”
A true testament that Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is Leading Medicine is the number of significant medical firsts we have contributed to the Fort Bend community, which at one time, were only available in the medical center, including:
- First abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
- First angioplasty with stents
- First brain surgery & awake brain surgery
