To Our Brandon Families,

It saddens us to announce that Dr. Gerard Hough will retire from our practice in March. He has been part of the Pediatric Health Care Alliance family since the very beginning when our group was founded in 1997 and will be greatly missed. We wish him much luck and happiness in this next stage of his life. A note from Dr. Hough to his patients and families is included below.

We value your trust and confidence as partners in your child’s health. All of us at Pediatric Health Care Alliance appreciate the opportunity to care for your children, and we hope you will consult with his partners at the Brandon Community Office. Please join us in wishing Dr. Hough the very best.

Sincerely,
Karalee Kulek-Luzey, M.D.
Medical Director

A Note from Gerard R. Hough, M.D.

To my wonderful families and their children,

After nearly 41 years of being entrusted with the care of your children, it is time for me to pass the baton to our younger pediatricians at the Brandon Office. I will be retiring from medical practice, effective March 16, 2021. Some of you have been with me for 3 generations and I am truly humbled by the trust you have placed in me for the care of your precious children.

Though it is time for me to retire and move on to the next journey of my life, I will bring with me all the smiles, laughter, joy, and some sorrows that you have let me share in your lives. The time has passed too quickly, and I can say I did not really have to work – each day you all made it an enjoyable experience for which I cannot say thank you enough. Thank you for entrusting me with the responsibility of your children’s care. Watching them grow up has been the greatest fun! My partners at the Brandon Office and at PHCA will continue to give the very best pediatric care which I have also been privileged to witness over the last 4 decades.

I will be moving on to volunteering at my church and in the community, doing lots of mountain biking, and traveling to see my large extended family across the United States. If you see me around, do let me know how your families are doing. I will truly miss each of you and cannot express how much joy everyone has brought me. Thank you so much and God bless each of you! 

Sincerely and with great fondness and gratitude,
Gerard R. Hough, M.D.
