Kelsey-Seybold Pasadena Clinic receives community recognition with clinic expansion

On Sept. 27, Pasadena Clinic, one of Kelsey-Seybold’s oldest clinics in Greater Houston, recently celebrated a 17,000-square-foot expansion that attracted attention from many local officials and community leaders.

The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce visited with clinic leaders and hosted a ribbon cutting commemorating the expansion on Nov. 9.

The ribbon cutting was attended by members of the Chamber of Commerce, Pasadena City Councilman Thomas Schoenbein, and representatives from Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner’s office and the office of State Representative Briscoe Cain.

“The expansion is a wonderful addition to the community,” Councilman Schoenbein said. “It takes a lot of stress off residents trying to drive to downtown Houston or other locations. I hope the expansion brings a sense of confidence and well-being to our citizens knowing we have medical facilities and partners that want to care for them where they live and work.”

Stuart Cayer, Senior Director of Ambulatory Clinics, kicked off the event by thanking the Pasadena community.

Chamber of Commerce and Harris County Precinct 2 Community Liaison Raul Camarillo gifted Kelsey-Seybold with a certificate of appreciation.

"With Pasadena being the second-largest city in Harris County, it is extremely important that we have a wide range of healthcare services available for our community,” Erin said. “With Kelsey-Seybold’s expansion in Pasadena, it diversifies the choices our residents have when selecting healthcare providers and gives them healthcare services right in their hometown. Being able to drive only minutes, versus hours, to get to the doctor is something our residents have grown to love and expect from our city.”

Pasadena Clinic Administrator Melissa Mohammed commented on how special it is for the clinic to receive Chamber recognition.

“Having the Chamber come out and acknowledge the expansion brings awareness to the community and tells people that we are here for them and growing,” Melissa said.  

With the new expansion, the Pasadena Clinic will be adding more providers, as well as more specialty services, including additional rotations in adult primary care, Pulmonary Medicine, Neurology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Dermatology, and new rotations in Surgery, Podiatry, Urology, and Rheumatology.

“A lot of patients are excited for the new specialties coming next year,” Melissa said. “We haven’t added all of our new services just yet, but once we do, we will offer an even wider selection of services for our patients.”
