Governor Abbott said: "In 1984, my life changed forever here in Texas when my spinal cord was crushed and I became a paraplegic. I went to TIRR Memorial Hermann where the doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and staff further pieced my life back together and put me on the road to rehabilitation. There is one word that sums up what TIRR Memorial Hermann provides: independence. Everyone wants a sense of independence in their lives, especially those who have lost the ability to walk or have other physical compromises that hinder their ability to move around. What TIRR Memorial Hermann does is put a person back on to as independent of a life as they could possibly have."

The Governor presented a proclamation to CEO Neeson to commemorate the beginning of construction of the improved facility. The renovations are expected to be completed by 2021 and will provide improved access for patients seeking rehabilitation services at TIRR Memorial Hermann Outpatient Rehabilitation – Kirby Glen Center.
