HISTORIC TIMES. AMAZING PEOPLE.

Calm and steady progress through whatever comes our way

As dedicated champions of health, Harris Health System readily embraces our responsibility to protect and improve the lives of all Harris County residents. Over the last fiscal year, and through the continuing coronavirus crisis, our courage and commitment have certainly been tested in unprecedented ways. Through it all, our Harris Health family, in collaboration with our medical school partners and the Harris County residents we serve have proved once again that, together, we are amazing.

Thoughts About THE YEAR BEHIND US

AND THE YEARS AHEAD

thoughts

TO OUR COMMUNITY:

How different our world is now than when fiscal year 2020 began. And how drastically daily operations have changed since the fiscal year ended. Still, despite daunting challenges, the last year or so has brought out the best in people.

We’ve seen extraordinary human efforts, systemwide, to improve patient safety and maintain zero patient harm.

We’ve seen our entire Harris Health family show remarkable courage, resourcefulness, solidarity and compassion to keep all systems running smoothly as we care for those in need.

We’ve witnessed doctors, nurses and medical professionals go about their work, at great personal risk, nimbly adapting to ever-changing protocols in dealing with a novel coronavirus.

We’ve marveled at the strength and support of our patients, their families and our community at large as we continue to fight this public health threat.

For the privilege of knowing and working with all these amazing people, we are enormously grateful.

In this, our first shared report, we present just a few of many stories of heroes rising to the challenge. They serve as clear evidence that working together as one is how we succeed, COVID or no COVID.

To The Future

Every year brings new and unexpected challenges. This past year brought more than any of us could have imagined. Through it all, we were given an extraordinary opportunity to see what powers our community and this institution: Amazing people all around.
