DALLAS – As extreme weather and cold temperatures continue to affect businesses and residents across North Texas, Medical City Healthcare hospitals are working in partnership with state and local leaders to resolve any weather-related issues as they arise.
All of our facilities have power, heat and drinkable water. Our teams are working tirelessly together to provide exceptional patient care in the face of exceptional circumstances. On top of the COVID-19 pandemic, Medical City Healthcare colleagues both clinical and non-clinical have risen to the challenge.
We can’t say enough about our amazing colleagues working non-stop to deliver compassionate patient care 24/7. Hundreds of Medical City Healthcare colleagues have spent the night inside our hospitals or at nearby hotels this week, some powering at-home work stations by connecting to their own vehicle battery. Non-clinical colleagues have shuttled co-workers, changed linens and delivered food to patients and staff, among many duties. Staff even rolled up their sleeves to donate blood at an in-hospital blood drive to help replenish community blood supplies. From the Medical City Healthcare nurse at the bedside to the engineer in the boiler room and everyone in between, they are all healthcare heroes.
