HCA Houston Healthcare Specialty Hospital Medical Center encourages family visitation during patient’s hospitalization and recovery. We know that having loved ones nearby makes patients more comfortable and may help with recovery, but patient care is our primary concern. Visitation times have been established so that patients have adequate time for rest, which is vital for recovery.

At Medical Center Specialty, we understand that patients have special needs. Exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

General visiting hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. We are located inside HCA Houston Healthcare Medical Center (formerly Park Plaza Specialty Hospital).
