Memorial Hermann Sports Park Opens in Katy
Memorial Hermann Sports Park, a new 50,000-square-foot sports medicine and human performance facility on the campus of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, is now open. The facility is a collaboration between Memorial Hermann, UT Physicians and Athlete Training and Health (ATH) to provide a full range of medical care and performance training for professional athletes, youth athletes, and active adults. Memorial Hermann Sports Park recently hosted a grand opening event featuring an open house for the community and a ribbon cutting presented by the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce.
“The Memorial Hermann Sports Park has been a huge passion project for all parties involved,” said Heath Rushing, Sr. Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy. “This first-of-its-kind facility could not exist if it weren’t for the important partnerships that have been formed between our organization and ATH over the years. Memorial Hermann Katy remains committed to advancing the health of the Katy community and we recognize that can only be accomplished with community partners. The Katy community overall lives an active lifestyle and this facility provides opportunity for that to happen every day for athletes of all ages and ability.”
On-site services and amenities at Memorial Hermann Sports Park include: Memorial Hermann Medical Group Katy Primary Care & Sports Medicine staffed by primary care physicians with sports medicine training; UT Physicians Orthopedics, comprised of physicians contributing to the advances in orthopedic medicine through innovative treatments, high quality patient care and clinical research; Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute, which offers leading clinical expertise of recovery and endurance training in order to help injured athletes return to sport faster and reach personal athletic goals; and an ATH training center with an adult fitness space, pro-style weight room and an indoor turf field for performance training. The facility also has an outdoor turf field to host a variety of community sports leagues including soccer, football and lacrosse.
"Through our partnership with Memorial Hermann, we are excited to bring a new standard of health, wellness and human performance to Katy,” said Scott Fennel, CEO of ATH. “Our state-of-the-art facility, highly educated coaches and cutting edge equipment allow us to provide sports performance for athletes of all ages and abilities and top-of-the-line fitness programs for adults. Combine that with the doctors and physical therapists on site, and we are able to provide those individuals, and the greater Katy community, with full-spectrum, holistic training and care that can't be matched anywhere else."
