DVIDS - News - Army hospital powers through record-breaking winter storms
With record-cold temperatures and potential power outages looming in South Central Texas earlier this week, Brooke Army Medical Center immediately launched into action to ensure continuity of patient care despite the impending storms.
With safety at the forefront and to conserve resources, BAMC first delayed all non-urgent medical appointments and procedures to ensure emergency services and trauma support to the city remained unaffected. This measure enabled patients and non-emergency-essential staff to stay off icy roads and safely at home.
