KATY, TEXAS (March 30, 2018)

Construction is underway on Memorial Hermann Sports Park – Katy, a new sports medicine and human performance facility on the campus of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. The facility is a collaboration between Memorial Hermann and Athlete Training and Health (ATH) to provide a full range of medical care and athletic training for professional athletes, youth athletes, and active adults.

“This unique collaboration between Memorial Hermann and ATH will benefit the full range of athletes in our community, from high school students to professional competitors, weekend warriors and beyond. Memorial Hermann Sports Park – Katy provides care for athletes from the moment of injury to the moment they return to play and beyond, serving as a one-stop-shop for all their sports medicine needs,” says Heath Rushing, Sr. Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy.

The facility will be supported by UT Orthopedic physicians who already serve the Katy community, as well as host an IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute, Memorial Hermann Medical Group primary care clinic staffed by primary care 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.

"We're proud to collaborate with Memorial Hermann to bring this innovative training center to Katy, home to some of the country's best athletes and sports teams," says Danny Cooper, chief operating officer of ATH. "This incredible facility — with the performance training, adult fitness, sports medicine and research — along with the turf practice field will serve the entire community. We know athletes, active adults and their doctors and coaches are going to be excited about how this training center helps them achieve their goals of getting stronger, healthier and more fit."

Slated to open in January 2019, the 50,000-square-foot facility represents a $15 million investment in the community.
