Texas Medical Center continues to operate to prioritize emergency cases and in-patient care. The majority of non-emergent and elective procedures have been rescheduled to later dates. We request that patients contact their care providers directly as schedules have changed as a result of the storm.
This morning, TMC deactivated flood gates to allow full access to TMC garages for utilization by patients, their families and health care professionals. Lower water levels have allowed roadways within the medical center and most of the roads immediately surrounding the medical center to remain open and passable.
