Oakbend Medical Center proudly presents Patchwork of Life event

300-oakbendThis year’s Patchwork of Life event, scheduled for Thursday, October 13th at Safari Texas, is dedicated to “Mending Lives Stitch by Stitch” and will benefit OakBend Medical Center’s Jackson Street Emergency Services.

Each year, the emergency care center at Jackson Street has at least 20,000 visits by injured or ill patients. These patients are met with physicians with advanced training in trauma life support and nurses with advanced training in trauma nursing and pediatric care.

OakBend Medical Center has worked hard to bring the best emergency care to the residents of Fort Bend County and the surrounding areas. The hospital’s emergency care center is a no-wait facility, making sure that patients are immediately taken to a room in the emergency center to meet with a staff member. The emergency care center is emergency medicine certified, stroke certified, STEMI certified and has the only Level III Advanced Trauma Center in Fort Bend County. OakBend Medical Center is equipped with the only permanently-based air ambulance in Fort Bend County.

Funds raised at this year’s Patchwork of Life event will be used to upgrade the emergency care center’s facility layout and environment, bringing an additional level of comfort to emergency center patients.
