After over a year of construction, Memorial Hermann Sports Park-Pearland is slated to have its grand opening Nov. 4.

Located on the campus of Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital, the sports medicine and human performance facility is a collaboration between Memorial Hermann, Athlete Training and Health and UT Physicians Orthopedics.

While the $15 million facility was originally slated to open in the spring, EE Reed Construction Superintendent Brad Mitchell said rain and material delays pushed the timeline for completion to October, when the occupants will inspect and outfit the building before the opening.

The 59,000-square-foot facility will be supported by UT Orthopedic physicians who already serve the Pearland community, such as Dr. Taggart Gauvain, assistant professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston and orthopedic surgeon affiliated with Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital.

Located on the second floor, the 29,000-square-foot space occupied by UT Physicians Orthopedics has 48 exam rooms and will provide sports medicine, joint replacement, foot and ankle surgery, hand surgery, pediatric surgery, and concussion management, according to a news release.

On the first floor, the 10,000-square-foot Memorial Hermann Rockets Sports Medicine Institute clinic will offer physical therapy tables, treadmills, turf and bars for walking and can accommodate 15 to 20 physical therapists.

The ATH training center will have an adult fitness space, a 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.

In addition to providing gym memberships to the community, the training center will also offer services and workout space for athletes from Pearland ISD through Athlete Training and Health, said Noel J. Cárdenas, senior vice president and CEO at Memorial Hermann Southeast and Pearland Hospitals.

Cárdenas said one of the biggest values is that the facility creates a streamlined space for ongoing care for those recovering from injury or surgery.

“So you’ve got your orthopedic surgeons ... then you’ve got your strength and conditioning,” Cárdenas said. “Let's say someone says, 'I really want to get stronger and keep sustained physical fitness,' then that’s when they would go over to the ATH part and join over there to continue their program.”

Memorial Hermann opened a similar sports park in Katy in 2019.
