Representatives from Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and Athlete Training and Health (ATH) broke ground recently on a new sports medicine and human performance facility being constructed on the campus of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital.

When completed in January 1919, the 50,000-square-foot Memorial Hermann Sports Park—Katy will 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, senior vice president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy, in a media release.

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 world-class training center to Katy, home to some of the country’s best athletes and sports teams,” states Danny Cooper, chief operating officer of ATH, the release continues.
