Katy, Texas is on track to become the next major medical center of the west Houston area. Right now there are two hospitals currently built and treating patients. At Fry Rd. just off of I10 you will find the Chritsus St. Catherine Hospital and at I10 just west of the Grand Parkway (HWY 99) you can be treated at Memorial Hermann Hospital. Soon there will be St. Lukes Hospital at the Grand Parkway and Kingsland (south of I10). Then Methodist Hospital and Texas Children's Hospital already have the land purchased to build next door to each other at I10 and Barker Cypress. When these get completed and start taking patients there will be five hospitals within a short distance from each other and all off of I10.
This move by these hospital systems will open plenty of opportunities for those in the health care industry as well as many other industries. This will also be positive for the growth of Katy because people that staff these hospitals will want to live close by so the Katy real estate industry will benefit as well as many other industries will be able to use the proximity of the healthcare to bring in quality employees to their companies.
