Looking To A Healthy Future

Significant population shifts, the pandemic, and Industry innovations are shaping the site decisions healthcare and medical device companies are making.

Tomball healthcare services, private medical offices, and other healthcare offerings meet family needs. This includes medical services provided by Tomball Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic on West Main Street, and senior living and memory care communities for patients needing full-time assistance.

There are also several initiatives to develop the local healthcare workforce. Tomball Regional Health Foundation, formerly the Authority, remains committed to promoting wellness and improving Tomball residents’ health status. Together, the Foundation and TEDC focus on developing the healthcare workforce with education partners, Lone Star College­—Tomball (LSC—Tomball) and Tomball Independent School District (TISD).

LSC—Tomball’s Health Science Building provides an environment to develop students in health occupations including nursing, vocational nursing, surgical, pharmacy and medical laboratory technology, and occupational therapy. State-of-the-art simulation labs mirror healthcare settings.

TISD’s Career and Technology Education program provides four-year plans of study in health sciences to prepare high school students for health sciences careers. Featured courses include nursing, emergency medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, sports medicine, and physical therapy.

As further commitment to prepare students for high-demand healthcare careers, TISD applied to Texas Education Agency (TEA) to establish an Early College High School for Pathways in Technology (P-TECH) for health professions at TISD Innovation Center. TEA assigned a counselor to move TISD P-TECH forward with a start date of August 2023. P-TECH employs rigorous curriculum, mentor partnerships, shadowing, and clinical experiences for students who simultaneously earn high school and college associate degrees through Tomball partners TISD, LSC—Tomball, and HCA Houston Healthcare.
