The Harris County Hospital District dedicated its newest pediatric facility — Pediatric and Adolescent Health Center-Cypress — on June 29. The new location marks the hospital district’s farthest expansion into northwestern Harris County.
More than 80 people attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Among the featured speakers included Harris County Commissioner Jack Cagle and HCHD President and CEO David S. Lopez.
“I welcome you to this part of the county and know that your presence in the community will be well received by all the residents of northwest Harris County,” Cagle told the crowd.
The new 6,860-square-foot facility has 12 exam rooms and two consultation rooms for behavioral health and psychiatry. The center is expected to treat about 10,000 patient visits annually. Among the services available to children up to the age of 18 are:
