Mark Bing, M.D.

Mark Bing, M.D., a board certified internal medicine specialist affiliated with Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, will be inducted into the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame on May 8. Dr. Bing is one of eight inductees who will be honored at the 2010 inductee banquet at Baylor University’s Ferrell Center in Waco.
Bing, who serves as the team physician for Katy High School as well as other district schools, was nominated in the special category, which recognizes non-coaches and non-players who positively impact Texas high school football. In the past, sports writers, referees and other team physicians have been honored in this category.
Bing comes from a family of team physicians. He has been a team physician for 25 years, but unofficially since he was a kid, running the sidelines with his dad who was a team physician for Katy High School from the early ’50s to the late ’80s.
“It is great to be recognized for a role that I am so passionate about,” said Bing. “I will accept the award in honor of all the people who came before me. My father, Lyndon, uncle Arlys, brother Paul and partner Rick Adams—all team physicians who continue to inspire me to serve the teams to the best of my ability. The real honor is being inspired by great coaches and players from every team in the district every year.”

Memorial Hermann Katy celebrated the groundbreaking of the new Memorial Hermann Katy Trail. Employees raised nearly $30,000 to construct the one-half mile loop that circles a retention pond adjacent to the hospital. Upon completion, the walking trail, which will be used primarily by staff, patients, families and doctors, will include covered benches and trees.
