Both teams of pediatric physicians are affiliated with Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and part of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston, bringing pediatric medical center expertise to the Katy community.

“It has always been our goal to keep up with the rapid growth in Katy, and these moves are meant to reflect that,” Jerry Ashworth, SVP and CEO of Memorial Hermann Katy and Cypress Hospitals, said. “We do not see these additions as the end of our growth – we will continue adding to our pediatric services to meet the demand of our surrounding neighborhoods.”

Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital is also home to pediatric general surgery, pediatric cardiology, pediatric orthopedics and other pediatric subspecialties. In addition, the Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital campus is home to primary care pediatricians affiliated with both Children’s Memorial Hermann Pediatrics and Blue Fish Pediatrics.
