Katy ISD and Katy Athletics are proud to announce the return of Memorial Hermann Katy as the official healthcare provider for the district’s athletic program. Memorial Hermann and Katy ISD originally entered into this agreement back in 2008. The agreement started out as a partnership with Memorial Hermann physicians and the district’s trainers to provide timely and cardiovascular screenings, nutrition letters, and Saturday morning athletic clinics. Katy ISD’s trainers work in tandem with Memorial Hermann’s team to constantly educate student-athletes, ensuring long-term wellness and short-term success in their athletic outings.
“Memorial Hermann prides itself on providing top-notch care and protecting and caring for Katy’s student-athletes, their parents, and the community as a whole,” says Diana Schauer-Tran, marketing director for Memorial Hermann Katy.
Charles Stevens, Katy ISD assistant athletic director, spearheaded the agreement back in 2008 and couldn’t be more pleased to continue through 2013. “Our trainers know that when a student-athlete suffers an injury, the physicians at Memorial Hermann will provide high-quality care in a time-efficient manner,” says Stevens.
In addition to the physician support, Memorial Hermann provides scholarships to Katy ISD student trainers each year. Three 2012 Katy ISD graduates recently received a $1,000 scholarship each to assist with their college expenses.
