MEMORIAL HERMANN EXPANDS ON-DEMAND HEALTHCARE SERVICES WITH URGENT CARE IN KATY
Memorial Hermann has further expanded healthcare services in the Katy area with the opening of Memorial Hermann Urgent Care in Fulshear. The clinic represents yet another major investment made by Memorial Hermann in the Katy community over the last few years.
“The recent expansion of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and local openings of a Convenient Care Center and Urgent Care clinic demonstrate our commitment to the greater Katy community and our mission to offer health care solutions that fit everyone’s schedule and needs,” says Jim Parisi, Senior Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital.
Located in the HEB shopping center near the intersection of S. Fry Road and FM 1463 at 5102 FM 1463, Suite 1200, the clinic provides walk-in care from 9 a.m.-9 p.m., seven days a week. It is staffed by board-certified family medicine physicians Funke Agbasi, M.D., Michael Nguyen, M.D., and Ladan Pourmasiha, D.O., who treat patients six months and older. The clinic also offers convenient access to x-ray and lab services.
“Memorial Hermann Urgent Care clinics provide on-demand healthcare for the times you can’t get in to see your primary care physician, but don’t need to go into an emergency center,” says David James, M.D., Senior Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Medical Group (MHMG). If your primary care physician is a member of the MHMG, records of your Memorial Hermann Urgent Care visit will be placed in your Memorial Hermann electronic health record. This will allow your MHMG primary care provider to easily review your Memorial Hermann Urgent Care records during any follow up appointments. For more information, call 281-574-1104 or visit mhmg.memorialhermann.org and look for Fulshear under “Locations.”

Rise Communities, developer of the Katy master-planned community of Cane Island and the Texas 288 master-planned community of Meridiana, has been named Developer of the Year by the Asian American Real Estate Association.
Rise Communities was recognized for the quality of its two new communities and for hosting community events which draw families to both Cane Island and Meridiana, according to Dorothy Yee, president of the Asian American Real Estate Association.
“The efforts of Rise Communities, including the build out of the Cane Island and Meridiana Amenity Villages ahead of their new homes, certainly caught the attention of our Realtor members,” says Yee.
Concerts, festivals and other public events in both Cane Island and Meridiana also played a role in selecting Rise Communities for the award, she adds.
“We greatly appreciate this award as acknowledgment of our efforts to develop two unique, highly amenitized communities,” says Dan Naef, president of Rise Communities.
In addition to recognition from the Asian American Real Estate Association, Rise Communities’ Cane Island was named 2016 Community of the Year by the Greater Houston Builders Association, one of the top honors presented annually by the GHBA.
