Description: Pin Oak Interests in conjunction with Linbeck Construction Company’s Denton A. Cooley Building “team” immediately set up a facilities command center. With wallboard and markers the team took a collaborative and comprehensive approach: identify all problems, normalize the situation, and monitor and attack the critical components. Bringing in temporary emergency generators and other equipment, the team began pumping water from the facility and restoring crucial systems.

Once critical care systems were stabilized, the team gave priority to restoring mechanical, electrical, and HVAC systems and obtaining re-certification for all services. Pin Oak Interests working with GE Electrical Systems developed an emergency website to monitor equipment and material deliveries that were being rushed in from across the nation to aid in the hospital rehabilitation. St. Luke’s Episcopal was the first hospital affected by this tragic event to fully re-open all affected areas and re-certify.
