Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas is now home to seven infants from Discoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi.
The infants who were in the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units were brought to Dell Children’s last night in preparation for Hurricane Harvey, which is expected to hit Corpus Christi late tonight or early Saturday morning. Care teams move them to Dell Children’s by air and ground.
“Being part of the Texas Hospital Association of Texas made it easy for us to communicate directly with Driscoll Children’s Hospital and partner to get their needs,” said Deb Brown, chief operating officer at Dell Children’s in a press release. “Driscoll Children’s did an excellent job of alerting us early and giving us time to get there. Their foresight was excellent and we’re honored to help care for their patients in this time of need.”
The infants will remain at Dell Children’s until it is safe for them to return to Corpus Christi.
