Wyomissing, PA – The unprecedented storm that hit the country in mid-February caused unavoidable transit delays and water scarcity in the southeast region of the United States. TRIOSE assisted weather-affected hospitals in Houston by locating drinking, distilled, and sterile water to help keep the hospitals functioning. In addition to locating the water, TRIOSE arranged transportation so that the water arrived before the hospitals ran out.
Late on the night of February 16th, Natalie Jones, the Director of Channel Management at TRIOSE received a call from a client looking for help getting a critical water shipment to them within 24 hours. In response, TRIOSE activated its emergency response team to assist the hospital. The shipments, which included nine pallets of sterile water for the respiratory ward of the Texas Children’s Hospital, as well as 21 pallets of water for Houston Methodist Hospital, were secured and in transit in less than 24 hours.
“As our logistics partner, TRIOSE was able to work with key suppliers and freight carriers, in order to facilitate enough water to meet the various needs of Houston Methodist. Without that assistance, we would not have been able to provide the much-needed support to our staff and most importantly, the patients we work so hard to serve,” says John A. Walters, Corporate Director, Supply Chain Logistics & Fleet Management, Distribution Center at Houston Methodist Hospital.
“Thank you for the excellent communication throughout the process. You have gone over and above, and we really appreciate the service you have provided,” says a representative from Texas Children’s Hospital.
“Our hospitals contacted us asking for assistance, and ever since we have been working around the clock to route vital resources to our hospitals,” says Jones. “Our team has stepped up and gone beyond the call of duty to assist our hospitals and healthcare networks in this time of need.”
In addition to the water deliveries, TRIOSE was able to secure and deliver COVID-19 vaccines that had been delayed in Houston due to the weather conditions. The vaccinations were successfully released and received by Houston Methodist Hospital.
“Our team is currently working to alleviate some of the stressors our hospitals and healthcare networks are experiencing during this weather emergency. I am very proud of how quickly our team responded to assist the affected hospitals in Texas. They will remain on standby until the hospitals return to standard operations,” says Gerry Romanelli, Chief Commercial Officer at TRIOSE.
