Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital recently broke ground on a new expansion, which includes a professional office building, a parking garage, additional surface parking and Memorial Hermann Sports Park-Cypress. These expansions will bring an additional 185,000 square feet of office space, more than 500 parking spaces and a state-of-the-art sports performance training and adult fitness center to the Memorial Hermann Cypress campus.
“This expansion has been highly anticipated ever since we announced it last year,” said Jerry Ashworth, senior vice president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital. “It is so wonderful to finally see this project come to fruition. This expansion will enhance the patient experience, which begins the moment someone visits our campus and enters the hospital to when they leave the campus grounds.”
Memorial Hermann Sports Park-Cypress will be a new sports medicine, sports training and adult fitness facility on the campus of Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital. The facility is a collaboration between Memorial Hermann, Athlete Training and Health (ATH) and UT Physicians Orthopedics to provide a full range of medical care and athletic training for professional athletes, youth athletes, team sports and active adults.
“We are thrilled to partner with Memorial Hermann and UTHealth Houston to provide fitness, sports performance and post-injury training services to Cypress and its surrounding Houston communities,” said Greg Centilli, chief operations officer of ATH. “With this being our third facility in collaboration with Memorial Hermann, we are fulfilling our mission of providing high-quality training environments for athletes and adults of all ages and fitness levels.”
The facility will host a UT Physicians Orthopedics clinic, a Memorial Hermann | Rockets Sports Medicine Institute clinic, physicians with sports medicine training, and an ATH training center with an adult fitness space, pro-style weight room and an indoor turf field for performance training. The facility will also have an outdoor turf field to host a variety of community sports leagues including soccer, football and lacrosse.
“Our goal is to provide Cypress and the surrounding communities advanced and specialized orthopedic care in all areas,” said Dr. Kevin J. Coupe, vice chair of clinical operations in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery with McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston and an orthopedic surgeon with Memorial Hermann | Rockets Orthopedics. “These sports parks become extremely important in their respective communities because they care for athletes of all ages and abilities. In addition, they provide wonderful opportunities to partner with local school districts and community sports leagues alike.”
The Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital expansion project is slated to be complete in 2024.
