When the hurricane season hit this year, Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) teams were prepared. But thanks to carefully designed disaster plans, strong communication, and volunteers willing to step up, OBHG's patients were well taken care of amidst the natural disasters.
A patient and hospital employee of Ascension Health sent his heartfelt thanks to our hospitalist team at St. Vincent’s Medical Center Southside in Jacksonville, Fla.
Just as Houston was beginning to pick up the pieces in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, another storm was right on its heels, headed straight for Florida. Again, Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) team members executed OBHG’s emergency protocols before Hurricane Irma hit land to ensure the safety of mothers and their babies during this time.
OBHG hospitalist Dr. Michelle Mulder delivered healthy babies at Christus Spohn Hospital South right as Hurricane Harvey hit Corpus Christi on Friday, August 25. She said the delivery via C-section took merely 20 minutes, right before the power went out. After she knew the mother and babies were safe, she turned her attention to her own granddaughter who was right down the hall in the NICU, born about four weeks earlier, at two and a half months premature.
A shift on labor and delivery units for Ob Hospitalist Group clinicians can be punctuated by quiet moments—and then sometimes there’s a hurricane.
The entire country watched as Hurricane Harvey barreled toward the Texas coast, bringing with it high winds of 130 miles an hour and horrendous flooding. On Aug. 25, the Category 4 hurricane crashed into the coast just northeast of Corpus Christi and dumped an estimated more than 50 inches of rain in some areas, according to the National Weather Service. "This is a landmark event for Texas," Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long said. "Texas has never seen an event like this."
