Summer Creek Clinic expansion to provide more services in Northeast Houston

Kelsey-Seybold leadership visited Summer Creek Clinic on Oct. 24 to break ground on the clinic’s recently announced expansion. When the expansion is complete, it will provide more healthcare options to current and new patients living in the northeast region of the Greater Houston area.

“Our patients are hungry for more specialties,” said Clinic Administrator IV Alvin Payne. “This location is unique because it doesn’t just serve Humble; it also serves Lake Houston, Kingwood, Atascocita, and Crosby. By adding more space, staff, and services, patients will have more options and shorter wait times while staying close to home.”

Stephanie Villanueva, a representative from Harris County Precinct One Commissioner Rodney Ellis’ office, attended the groundbreaking. Stephanie is excited residents will have more options for healthcare services in this growing area of town.

“I think many people in Harris County don’t know where they can go to see a doctor. To have this clinic right next to the Beltway and an expansion underway means more people will see it as they drive by,” Stephanie said. “Having clinics conveniently located near people’s home and work makes it easier for them to participate in their health – to see a doctor and hopefully improve their health, which is always a good thing.”
