Steward Health Care and The Medical Center of Southeast Texas to hold CommUNITY Relief Effort
Healthy snack stations designed to refresh and refuel storm survivors
(BEAUMONT, TX) – After hosting a donation drive and lunch for 1000 individuals in need on Saturday, 9/21, The Medical Center of Southeast Texas is ready to continue helping our community in need. Steward Health Care, Steward Medical Group, and The Medical Center of Southeast Texas are inviting those affected by Tropical Storm Imelda to refresh and re-energize at several healthy snack stations around the community. The outreach is part of the ongoing efforts to help the region get back on its feet following the recent floods.
Steward has set up the Steward CommUNITY Relief Stations at three locations:
- Southeast Texas Medical Associates, 3570 College St., Beaumont
- The Medical Center of Southeast Texas Beaumont Campus, 6025 Metropolitan Drive (off Dowlen Road)
- The Medical Center of Southeast Texas Port Arthur Campus, 2555 Jimmy Johnson Blvd in Port Arthur
“Taking care of our community is our top priority in the aftermath of this destructive storm,” said Craig Desmond, president of The Medical Center of Southeast Texas, Beaumont and Port Arthur health care system. “We are committed to walking side-by-side with our neighbors as they continue the arduous process of recovery.”
The Steward CommUNITY Relief Stations will be open Monday, Sept. 30 through Friday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. The community is invited to stop in for water, bananas and granola bars
Steward’s footprint in the region includes The Medical Center of Southeast Texas Beaumont and Port Arthur campuses, as well as numerous medical practices overseen by Steward Medical Group, a key part of Steward Health Care.
“Many of our own employees were affected by the storm and while we continue to assist them, we also have a duty to help ease the road to recovery for as many of our neighbors as we can,” said Dr. Michael Callum, president of Steward Medical Group. “We look forward to welcoming the community to our relief stations and providing them some respite and goodwill.”
