Memorial Hermann Healthcare System, Houston, announced plans to build a 75-bed hospital in the suburb of Sugar Land, the system's third major capital project since March. The 11-hospital system said it will simultaneously close 65-bed Memorial Hermann Fort Bend Hospital, which is 10 miles away in Missouri City, Texas. The Sugar Land facility will cost $93 million and is expected to open in 2006. Memorial Hermann previously announced a $98 million replacement for its Memorial Hermann Katy (Texas) Hospital and the development of three cancer institutes at a cost of at least $100 million. -- by Mary Chris Jaklevic
