Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital is fully functioning following Hurricane Ike that hit southeast Texas late last week.
"We had a few issues - we lost power for a period of time, but our backup generators kicked on," said Lisa White, associate administrator of Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital. "We lost some trees, but overall we were lucky."
She said the hospital is helping any way they can, including notifiying other hospitals that CFMCH was fully functional.
"We have seen some interest from other areas and notified our physicians of our availability. We have also seen an influx in outpatients," White said.
White owes the functionality of the hospital now to being well-prepared for disasters such as Hurricane Ike. "We were very well-prepared. That's why we have drills over and over," she said. "We had enough linens, food, supplies and everything. We were able to feed our employees, patients and families who had to stay here."
