Quentin Mease under construction for its transition to an outpatient facility
Major reconstruction is happening at Harris Health System’s Quentin Mease facility at 3601 North MacGregor Way in Houston. The project, which began in February and is expected to take 12 to 18 months, will convert the hospital into an exclusively outpatient center for clinical services, according to a statement from Harris Health.
The community hospital housed a 25-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit and a 20-bed skilled nursing unit before this transition. Harris Health has arranged inpatient rehabilitation and skilled nursing services with other community providers to ensure Harris County patients will continue receiving necessary care, Harris Health System‘s director of communications Bryan McLeod told TMC News via email.
Throughout construction, staff will continue to serve outpatients in the fifth-floor rehabilitation center, which provides physical, occupational and speech therapy. That space includes an 8,500-square-foot gymnasium as well as 19 different treatment areas and three private rehabilitation treatment rooms. A geriatric services clinic also continues to accept patients on the building’s first floor.
The reconstructed facility will offer new programming and clinical services, including outpatient chronic hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis as well as HIV care. Additional offerings will be announced as the planning process continues and construction nears completion, officials said.
