Kelsey-Seybold Opens New Clinic in Gulfgate Shopping Center

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Gulfgate expands access to coordinated, evidence-based care serving Houston's Southeast residents

HOUSTON (Nov. 15, 2021) – Kelsey-Seybold Clinic opened a 19,137-square-foot clinic today in Gulfgate Shopping Center, expanding access to coordinated, evidence-based care in an area with limited primary healthcare options. Gulfgate Clinic is located at 520 Gulfgate Center Mall, Houston, TX 77087, at the northeast corner of the intersection of I-45 and Loop 610 S.

"This clinic represents another significant investment in the City of Houston by Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, and we're excited to welcome current and new patients to this beautiful, new, conveniently located facility with so many amenities under one roof," said Sheldon Gaines, M.D., Managing Physician, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Gulfgate. "Patients who come to Kelsey-Seybold stick with us because the quality of care they receive is unmatched. Another key to our growth and success is that our staff and providers care. We care about the people who walk through our doors and genuinely want to work with them to help improve their lives and the quality of healthcare they receive."

The Gulfgate Clinic opening comes on the heels of four other clinic openings in 2021 including: Memorial City, Lake Jackson, North Channel, and River Oaks, as well as an expansion of Pasadena Clinic. Additional openings and announcements are planned for later this year.

The new Gulfgate Clinic is an integral part of Kelsey-Seybold's strategy of providing convenient access to all patients in the South Central region of Houston. In addition to primary care services for adults and children, patients will have access to an on-site pharmacy, laboratory, X-ray, ultrasound, 3D digital mammography, and other diagnostic testing.

For more specialized services, patients may be referred to the nearby Berthelsen Main Campus, which has more than 100 physicians, an ambulatory surgery center, cancer center, breast diagnostic center, nuclear medicine, PET-CT, as well as in-house MRI and CT.

Gulfgate Clinic is the final piece of Kelsey-Seybold's Ship Channel strategy, with clinic locations that surround this major employment base in all directions – Gulfgate (west), North Channel (north), Baytown (east), and Pasadena (south). These locations will give Ship Channel employees and those living in nearby communities easy access to high-quality, convenient medical care they deserve and value.

"We take great pride in our new, beautiful clinic, and our entire team looks forward to welcoming residents to our model of care, which prioritizes coordination, quality, and patient satisfaction," said Audrey Hindlet, Clinic Administrator, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Gulfgate. "Gulfgate is a tight-knit community. We hope to develop enduring relationships with our patients who live and work nearby."

The new Kelsey-Seybold Clinic – Gulfgate location was designed by Powers Brown Architecture. United Constructors was the general contractor for this project.
