Early in the pandemic, Emergency Hospital Systems in Cleveland, including Cleveland Emergency Hospital and Texas Emergency Hospital, were at the forefront of Liberty County’s response. From testing for COVID19 to providing vaccinations to area residents, they went above and beyond to serve the community. Texas Governor Greg Abbott and First Lady Cecilia Abbott have recognized them for their hard work and dedication to local healthcare over the past year and a half.
“Your hard work has helped to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our communities while also safeguarding crucial state resources and ensuring the protection of our most vulnerable Texans,” said Abbott in a letter of recognition received last week.
Abbott goes on to say, “I often say it is not our challenges that define us, but rather how we rise above them. You have demonstrated this ideal through your tireless efforts to serve your fellow Texans, and on behalf of the entire state, I thank you. You truly exemplify the very best of the Lone Star State.
During the pandemic, the Emergency Hospital Systems served as the Hub for Liberty County and has administered approximately 43,000 vaccines and tested thousands for the virus along the way.
“Throughout the entire COVID pandemic, I have been very proud of my team and how they have pulled together taking care of the citizens of Cleveland,” said Emergency Hospital Systems CEO Michael Adkins.
Emergency Hospital Systems will continue to offer vaccinations at the Texas Emergency Hospital campus in Cleveland, Monday-Friday, for anyone needing the Pfizer Booster and are awaiting approval to begin administering the Moderna Booster in the coming days.
