Medistar Corporation - Making an Impact on the Regional Bay Area

Medistar Corp, a Houston-based medical real estate developer, recently purchased 177 acres in Webster from Irving, Texas-based Exxon Mobil Corp. for an undisclosed price. Plans are to build a mixed-use development featuring a new hotel and conference center, retail, office, medical facilities and entertainment. The development will be adjacent to Webster’s new TopGolf, which is expected to open this fall, and near Fry’s Electronics and Academy Sports + Outdoors. There will be frontage facing the Gulf Freeway with access from the feeder road, besides other planned access. This development clears the way for more possibilities to be built closer to the border between the City of Webster and League City.
The Bay Area Regional Medical Center, owned by Medistar Corp., opened July 2014 and will soon be making an upward expansion. The medical center is located at 200 Blossom Street, Webster. The new construction will create more than 100,000 sq. ft. and double its patient capability. The following upgrades will be added to the medical center:
  • Build-Out of Floors 6, 7, 8 and 9:  Increase Bed Count from 104 to approximately 200
  • Total Area at Completion:  373,000 Square Feet within 9 Stories
  • ED Capacity:  Increased from 11 Beds to 23
  • Add New Fast-Track Beds and Trauma Beds
  • Add State-of-the-Art Imaging
  • Expand Cardiology Department
  • New Bi-Plane Cath Lab and Additional Cardiac Cath Lab
  • New Interventional Radiology Suite
  • Add Five Large Operating Suites
  • New Labor and Delivery Rooms (LDRs), C-Section Rooms, Post-Partum Rooms, Well-Born Nursery and NICU
  • 9th Floor: New Community Conference Rooms, Support Services and Administration Offices
Medistar Corporation has also announced plans to develop integrated senior care facilities in the Greater Houston area. Each will provide modern, patient-centered assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing services specific to the communities of Katy, Pearland and the Webster-Clear Lake area. The Pearland senior care facility will complement the acute care services of Memorial Hermann Southeast and meet this community’s accelerating, unmet needs in post-acute and residential care for seniors.

“While some have only recently begun to focus on the continuum of care, meeting the needs of residents and their families has been a high priority to Medistar and our operator partners for over three decades,” said Medistar’s Founder and CEO, Monzer Hourani. “As in Katy and Pearland, the Webster-Clear Lake area senior care facility will meet the specific needs of this vibrant community. It also will be part of a significant new medical complex, which will include an integrated medical plaza with on-site imaging, laboratory, pharmacy, elective surgery center, outpatient cardiac cath lab, outpatient rehabilitation services and medical offices,” said Mr. Hourani.
