In 1971 a group of physicians bought 60 acres off a two-lane, farm-to-market throughway called "Jackrabbit Road" in northwest Harris County. Back then it was nothing more than a cow pasture.
Those founding physicians were convinced the area held great potential for growth, and there were no medical facilities nearby. They were right.
