As the Texas coast recovers from Hurricane Harvey, the Texas Hospital Association is continuing to assist member facilities that were affected. Staff has hosted and participated in preparedness and readiness discussions with our local, state and federal partners. THA is continuing to distribute information to member hospitals as necessary and respond to individual member needs.

Jeffrey M. Canose, M.D., FACHE, Chairman of the THA Board of Trustees and chief operating officer and senior executive vice president of Texas Health Resources in Arlington, discusses THA’s response to Hurricane Harvey in the Aug. 31 issue of THA’s Health Care Advocate.
