Service Member’s from the Texas Army and Air National Guard set up a Medical Treatment Facility or MTF in the parking lot of the Baptist Hospital of Southeast Texas, in Beaumont.

The hospital began transferring patients when the cities water supply was cut off. As a result,
hospital staff coordinated with Texas Emergency Services to bring in the Role 2 Medical Treatment Facility provided by Texas Military Forces. 

The MTF was able to treat well over 200 civilians from Beaumont and surrounding areas. Patients recieved services such as general first aid, prescription medications, ultrasounds, and X-ray capabilities. 

The hospital and Texas military forces brought care to the citizens of Beaumont when they needed it most.
