Memorial Hermann Southwest 35th Anniversary

February 15, 2012

At the time of opening, Memorial Hermann Southwest was a community hospital with a focus on obstetrics and cardiology. Approximately 620 physicians were affiliated with the hospital. Today, they operate more than 450 beds with 1,000+ affiliated-physicians. Over 100 physicians have been affiliated with the hospital for 25+ years.

They have successfully mirrored the growth of the surrounding community by expanding their services and capabilities to match the needs of southwest Houston. The Asian Care Unit, Senior Services, Level III NICU and expanded emergency capabilities exemplify their vigilance in ensuring the community’s needs are met. When they opened the hospital’s doors 35 years ago they made a commitment to their neighbors that they would make their health and well-being their highest priority. Today, they proudly honor this commitment through their wealth of services and will continue to be committed and expand with the community for the next 35 years and beyond.

This video showcases the hospital’s commitment to making a difference in the lives of the ever-changing community they serve. It highlights key employees and physicians who exemplify the servant leadership spirit that make Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital special.
