Dallas-based Medical City Healthcare and its hospitals in North Texas reported Monday receiving 34 adult patients who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey from its sister company HCA Healthcare hospitals on the Gulf Coast.
The first group of patients arrived in Dallas-Fort Worth on Thursday. Eleven patients were transported from Baptist Beaumont Hospital in Beaumont, and 22 patients were transferred from other HCA Healthcare hospitals.
Ten of the 33 patients are currently admitted at 10 North Texas Medical City Healthcare hospitals for “high-level and specialized care.” Medical City reported the patients are mostly requiring intensive care. Their age range is from the 20s to the 80s.
Erol Akdamar, president of Medical City Healthcare, said in a statement: “No matter where the patient comes from or the medical facility in need, we are committed to our mission to the care and improvement of human life. Together, we stand Texas strong.”
