When Hospitals Become Islands One Facility's Evacuation Story

In 2017, Houston and surrounding areas were inundated by close to 60 inches of rain in just a few days. Hospitals became islands, roads were impassable, and military and public safety helicopters were brought in to evacuate people from their rooftops. Todd Senters (MHA, FACHE, Service Line Administrator and Facility Administrator at Baptist Beaumont Hospital’s Orange Campus) shares how staff in his facility worked to care for existing patients (and those who were dropped off by helicopter) just prior to having to evacuate due to a breach in the City of Beaumont’s water pumps.
