As hard-hit northern Houston rebuilds after Harvey, a stunning new medical facility opens and is contributing to the effort. The state-of-the-art Kingwood Emergency Center shares in the area's strength and core values of community and leadership. Neighbors and community leaders agree that this long-anticipated project is visually spectacular, and much-needed, located at 23330 Eastex Freeway Service Road, (Northeast corner of Kingwood Drive and 59), Kingwood, Texas 77339.
Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Jenna Armstrong says 44 percent of Lake Houston area businesses sustained some type of damage in Harvey; residential areas and schools were equally hard hit. Rebuilding and recovery efforts depend on strong local medical facilities. Kingwood Emergency Center is committing to providing concierge emergency, 24/7 care for the area.
At the Grand Opening Celebration on Jan. 28, Kingwood Emergency Center awarded a $1,000 donation to the Humble Area Assistance Ministries, a local non-profit organization that was instrumental in assisting Hurricane Harvey victims. Kingwood Emergency Center is also committed to being a part of the ongoing efforts to rebuild and revitalize the area. Physician Partner and once Kingwood resident Eric McLaughlin states, “Community isn’t just a notion of geographic boundaries, it’s about putting relationships before opportunities. When we lift others up, we become better together. That’s what this neighborhood has always been about, and that’s what Kingwood Emergency Center will emphasize. We are also hoping to encourage local residents to seek medical care locally. Every medical specialty is well represented in this community. There’s no need to drive into the congested inner city when great emergency care is right here."
