Our orthopedic team was deeply honored to be part of this memorable celebration and to welcome everyone to this new campus. The grand opening was not only a showcase of the facility’s impressive resources but also a demonstration of ATH’s unwavering commitment to the well-being of the Pearland community.
The event began with a warm welcome from the Mayor, followed by an enthusiastic and heartfelt message from Dr. Taggart Gauvain, Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston. Dr. Gauvain’s speech echoed ATH’s dedication to providing top-tier healthcare services and emphasized the importance of community health and well-being. His words resonated with the attendees, setting a tone of unity and support for the future of healthcare in Pearland.

Here, they had the chance to personally meet some of our orthopedic providers and see the space exclusively designed with our patients in mind. This intimate encounter with our orthopedic services provided a firsthand glimpse of the specialized care and expertise offered at UTHealth Houston/UT Physicians Department of Orthopedic Surgery.
The grand opening was not only a celebration of ATH’s commitment to excellence but also a recognition of the strong bond between our healthcare providers and the Pearland community.
