Conveniently located at the intersection of Highway 59 and Kingwood Drive, Kingwood Medical Center (KMC) is the premier healthcare provider for the Northeast Houston area, including North Harris, East Montgomery and Liberty counties. At KMC, they believe in “Patients First” and their commitment to providing patients with quality healthcare close to home has never been stronger.

Brain & Spine Center
The Brain & Spine Center is accredited by DNV as a Comprehensive Stroke Center and is the recipient of the American Stroke Association’s Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award. KMC is a leader in northeast Houston treating patients suffering from stroke, aneurysm and spinal injuries. Stroke is a major cause of death and disability, and patient outcomes depend on how quickly blood flow is restored to the brain. Treatment options for stroke include thrombolytic medications that aim to dissolve the clot, and interventional endovascular procedures (similar to a cardiac catheterization) to remove it. Successful stroke care requires early recognition, transporting the patient to a designated comprehensive stroke center, and early activation of a stroke team at the hospital. Time loss is brain loss.
The Cardiovascular Center and interventional cardiology program was the first in northeast Houston to offer an open-heart surgery and electrophysiology program. The comprehensive program is an Accredited Chest Pain Center and is comprised of vascular and cardiovascular surgery, pulmonary diagnostics and stress testing.
The Women & Children’s Center
The Women & Children’s Center offers comprehensive services from prenatal care through labor and delivery to postpartum care. Along with a Well-Baby Nursery, KMC has Level II and Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Units on-site for the tiniest patients. For moms requiring a higher level of care, they have a high-risk antepartum unit, designed for moms with “special” needs, both short and long term. Maternal fetal medicine specialists are available for high-risk moms to ensure the highest quality of care.
Obstetrical Emergency Department
The Obstetrical Emergency Department, located at the Women & Children’s Center at KMC houses an OB/GYN in-hospital 24/7. This physician evaluates women with obstetric and gynecologic issues, consults with the patient’s primary physician or OB/GYN, and is ready for any OB emergency that might arise.
