HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – The Menninger Clinic is building a 33,000-SF Outpatient Services Center on Menninger’s 50-acre campus on Highway 90, a few miles south of the Texas Medical Center.
The Houston-based, nationally ranked nonprofit psychiatric hospital is expected to break ground on the healthcare facility in November.
Mental Health During the Pandemic
“I know our donors are as thrilled as we are to get this important project underway,” said Armando E. Colombo, president and CEO, The Menninger Clinic. “The Outpatient Services Center will play a key role in expanding Menninger’s care to more people. Our new facility will allow us to grow and also capitalize on the popularity of telehealth that so many people have benefitted from during the pandemic. Our outstanding clinicians will have the tools to make virtual house calls using the latest technology.”
JLL is managing development of the facility, expected to open February 2022. Design is by Kirksey Architecture and the general contractor is Tellepsen, based in Houston.
JLL Senior Vice President Mark Harrison is leading JLL’s Project & Development Services team. “As one of the nation’s foremost leaders in behavioral health, we know their work and this new Outpatient Center will have a profound and positive impact on the overall health and well-being of many neighbors, friends and families in our community.”
The Menninger campus is located at 12301 S Main St., near South Post Oak Road.
The Menninger Clinic has expanded services during the pandemic for Greater Houston and patients who travel from elsewhere in Texas and the nation to get mental health assessment and treatment. The Outpatient Services Center will become the home to Menninger’s existing Sleep Medicine Service, Brain Stimulation Center, Outpatient Assessment Service, medication management, outpatient consultations and therapy, as well as complementary programs as they are developed.
Ranked No. 3 in Building Design + Construction’s 2019 Construction Management Giants survey and No. 4 on Engineering News-Record’s 2019 list of Top 100 Construction Management-for-Fee Firms, JLL’s project management team comprises 6,500 project managers across 56 countries and is actively managing $85 billion under construction.
