Emergency Preparedness Shelters Patient Safety from the Storm
In August of 2017 Hurricane Harvey—a Category 4 hurricane reaching sustained winds up to 130 mph—made landfall on the Texas coastline. For close to 96 hours, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas in Beaumont (BHSET) would be ground-zero for this catastrophic natural disaster.
Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas’ dedication to performing sacred work keeps their patients and community safe. When natural disasters create chaos and unpredictability, partnering with someone who understands the nature of natural disasters and the impact they can have on communities and staff can help support patient safety. MEDHOST strives to be the partner hospitals can count on to help shelter their patients from the storm.
