“Just shortly after Ike passed we started working on bringing our facilities back,” Dr. Callender said. “We began to hear from our patients about how important this facility is, and how much it has done to offer a convenient facility for service to our Galveston patients and how important it was to us to bring it back.”
Callender, who said he already has been a physical therapy patient at the facility, introduced John Kelso, chair of the Sealy & Smith Foundation.
“Today marks another milestone for UTMB and their recovery from Hurricane Ike,” Kelso said, noting that it has been designed to avoid future flood damage. “It’s a facility we’re all proud of and it will provide service to all the citizens for many years.”
“This is where I get my annual physicals,” said Galveston Mayor Lewis Rosen, as a person note, before he presented a proclamation designating the day UTMB Primary Car Pavilion Reopening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Day.
