Turner, Houston Health Department open Sunnyside Health and Multi-Service Center

Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Houston Health Department opened the first combined health and multi-service center in the Sunnyside community today, offering a new state-of-the-art facility to better support the underserved community.

The new Sunnyside Health and Multi-service Center located at 4410 Reed Rd., offers more than 57,000 square feet of combined community service-oriented, multi-service center, and health center programs in one facility.

“This new facility has been a long time coming for the Sunnyside community and this community has long been a focus of my Complete Communities initiative,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. “They now have access to a magnificent health and multi-service center in one state-of-the-art facility.”

The facility is the first of its kind for the Sunnyside community with a large two-story indoor atrium connecting the health and multi-service areas. The new $25.8 million center replaces the nearly 30-year-old former Sunnyside Health Center and Sunnyside Multi-Service Center.

The center also has a quarter-mile walking trail open daily for exercise, a community garden for volunteers to help maintain, and a fitness room.
