TOMBALL - MAGNOLIA EDITION • AUGUST 2021

These are challenging times for Greater Houston communities contending with yet another wave of COVID-19. The serious illness and loss of life is a tragedy for affected families, and it is taking a physical and emotional toll on medical professionals. As CEO of St. Luke’s Health, which includes Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center (the research and teaching hospital for Baylor College of Medicine) and St. Joseph Health in Brazos Valley, I am seeing the number of patients with the coronavirus grow each day. Per data from the Texas state epidemiologist, 75% of new COVID-19 cases are reported to be a result of the highly transmissible Delta variant. The average age for admission in our hospitals has dropped by approximately 15 years, making 40-45 the age range most affected. While we’ve learned from the past COVID-19 surges, the Delta variant poses new challenges to our critical safety net, impacting both the cost of providing care and the number of doctors and nurses needed to staff hospitals. Last year, nearly 21,000 healthcare providers responded to the American Medical Association’s COVID-19 for Caregivers Survey. The respon- dents cited that coping with the fear of exposing themselves and their families to disease, as well as constant work overloads and burnout, are all part of their daily routines. The stress of working during a pandemic has caused many to retire early or leave the healthcare profession entirely. The result is that there are shortages in critical areas, such as nursing, and the overall cost of maintaining our hospital’s labor force has increased dramatically. We are actively working with our insurance companies regarding this escalating cost of providing healthcare and I remain hopeful that we will be able to partner with the payor community to ensure that we are paid fairly for this important work and continue to be in the best position to provide high value care to the communities that we serve. Our patients are the reason we come to work every day. Providing them with exceptional care is a responsibility we welcome and one that we will always honor as we work to ensure the trust of St. Luke’s Health is the best place to give and receive care and while I am always willing to talk about our caregivers and the best-value care and essential services they provide, it is very nice when someone else will do that for you. Caring for the Caregivers

Each year, U.S. News and World Report reports on the nation’s best hospitals and best specialties. Last week, the magazine recognized Baylor St . Luke’s Medical Center (Baylor St . Luke’s) as a Best Hospital nationally for 2021-22. For the 2021-22 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,750 medical centers nationwide. Additionally, Baylor St. Luke’s was ranked nationally in the following specialties:

» Cancer (The Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center), No. 25 » Cardiology & Heart Surgery, No. 13 nationally and top-ranked in Houston » Gastroenterology & GI Surgery, No. 24 » Geriatrics, No. 46 » Neurology & Neurosurgery, No. 33

Of course, I am proud of the U.S. News and World Report recognition, yet I am even more proud of what we are doing at St . Luke’s to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of our friends and neighbors. And we will continue to do so years into the future.

T. Douglas Lawson CEO, St. Luke’s Health

St. Luke’s Health comprises 16 hospitals located in Houston, Bryan/College Station, and East Texas, including the renowned Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center (BSLMC). BSLMC is an academic health center providing quaternary care. We are a non-profit health system guided by our values of Compassion, Inclusion, Integrity, Excellence, and Collaboration.

Tomball, Magnolia to address tourism, infrastructurewith federal relief funds

MEETING THE NEEDS The cities of Tomball and Magnolia both have plans in place for how city officials want to use the funds to help recover from the pandemic.

Expansion of water and sewer infrastructure

Investments in travel and tourism industry

Reimbursement of lost revenues

BY CHANDLER FRANCE

“The pandemic impacts are wide- spread, so a lot of [sectors of the city] felt it, so we feel that these funds are intended not just for what is good for one sector of the city, but more so what’s good for the community,” Esquivel said. Esquivel’s recommendations include providing grants for nonprof- its hit hard by the pandemic, improv- ing Tomball’s Historic Depot Plaza and replacing lost revenue from the city’s hotel occupancy tax revenue fund, he said. “When we look at the limited funds we have regularly, a lot of [these] projects we just can’t tackle, so [this is] a good use of this money,” he said. Magnolia City Administrator Don Doering said the city plans to use most of its funds to address water and sewer needs. He said the city needs another well, which could cost between $1 million-$2 million,

The cities of Tomball and Magnolia will receive a combined total of more than $3 million in federal funds to assist with economic shortfalls resulting from the COVID-19 pan- demic. Tomball will receive $2.92 million, and Magnolia will receive approximately $518,000, according to the Texas Division of Emergency Management. The money comes from the American Rescue Plan Act, a $350 billion federal COVID-19 relief fund to support economic recovery for states, counties and cities. Tomball City Manager David Esquivel said he submitted a list of recommendations to City Council to use the funds in three areas: kickstarting the tourism industry, reimbursing lost revenue for the marketing department, and address- ing water and sewer projects.

FUNDING RECOVERY American Rescue Plan Act funds are distributed to cities based on population. Cities will receive the first half of their funding within 30 days after Aug. 2 and the second half of the funding a year later.

and needs to expand its wastewater treatment capacity, which could cost close to $84 million. “We’re trying to utilize [funds] the best we can to help the citizens and provide better services,” Doering said. Doering said the funds will be used

as needed to address these issues. Esquivel, on the other hand, said the city of Tomball plans to use the money as quickly as possible. According to Esquivel, cities have until 2024 to come up with a plan to use the ARPA funds and need to spend the funds by 2026.

COVID19 antibody infusion center opens

The Texas Department of State Health Services opened a COVID-19 antibody infusion center in Montgomery County on Aug. 16 as part of an eort to aid state hospital capacity, according to an Aug. 13 news release. The center can take up to 150 infusions per day and can admit 50 patients at a time, according to a Facebook post fromMontgomery County Judge Mark Keough. Antibody infusion centers treat COVID-19 patients who do not require hospitalization to ensure their condition does not worsen. The centers use the therapeutic drug Regeneron to infuse monoclonal antibodies into the patient, enabling their immune system to ght the virus. Regeneron received a Food and Drug Admin- istration emergency use authorization for the antibody treatment in November. “Antibody infusion centers play an integral role in our eorts to combat COVID-19 because they help prevent hospitalizations and ensure that resources are available to treat the most severe cases of this virus,” Gov. Greg Abbott said in a news release. Keough wrote plans were under way to increase the number of infusions per day. “This is a great opportunity for Montgomery County to help keep as many people out of the hospitals locally and regionally. We are honored to be partnering with the state to bring this opportunity to our area,” Keough wrote on Facebook. Patients must receive a referral from their physician and meet certain criteria. Referral information can be found at www.setrac.org, according to an Aug. 16 release from St. Luke’s Health. The location of the center could not be released for health and safety reasons.

Raburn Reserve is under construction with 391 lots at South Persimmon and Hufsmith-Kohrville roads. “Raburn Reserve is an incredible location just ve minutes from both the Grand Parkway and Tomball Parkway,” said Tod Rasmussen, Taylor Morrison division president for Houston, in the release. “We’re thrilled to be selected for this development and oer homes to meet the demand for move-up buyers and empty nesters. With such a low inventory in the Houston market, we expect this community to be extremely popular given its location and easy access.” Homes are anticipated to sell from the $300,000s and range from 1,700 square feet to 3,100 square feet with one- and two-story oor plans. Home features may also include open-concept living areas, secondary bedrooms downstairs, ex space, three- and four-car garages, and options for up to ve or six bedrooms, according to the release. The homes will also include LiveWell, features

County offering $100 incentive for vaccinations

Criminal Justice Reform Harris County approved $11 million for two new violence prevention plans Aug. 10 as part of its criminal justice reform strategy. 1 Holistic Alternative Responder Team Cost to create: $5 million How it works: The team will work with community organizations to respond to nonviolent calls relating to issues such as mental health, substance use, homelessness and social welfare. This is an alternative response team to 911 calls in limited geographic areas.

Aug. 9 press conference. Currently, 911 dispatchers have three response options—the fire department, emergency medical services and law enforcement. If the caller’s concern does not fit into one of these categories, dispatchers generally send law enforcement. By the end of the year, the HART will be a fourth response option in limited geographic areas with plans to expand in the future. The Gun Violence Interruption Program, which will cost about $6 million to implement, will focus on addressing the root causes of violence and preventing it before it occurs through community-based street outreach, officials said. It will operate in one or two high-need communities and in one hospital in its first year, connecting at-risk individuals to mental health, social, educational, economic and employ- ment services.

BY EMMA WHALEN

HARRIS COUNTY Commissioners approved two violence prevention plans in a 3-2 vote Aug. 10. Commissioners unanimously agreed at the June 9, 2020, meeting to set aside $25 million for criminal justice intervention programs related to poverty, mental health and substance use. The programs approved Aug. 10 will require about $11 million from those funds. Harris County will invest $5 million to create a Holistic Alter- native Responder Team to work with community organizations to respond to nonviolent calls pertain- ing to issues such as mental health, substance use, homelessness and social welfare. “To reduce crime, we have to break that cycle of crime, incarcer- ation, recidivism and get at the root causes of crime,” Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said during an

HARRIS COUNTY In the latest effort to increase vaccination rates, Harris County is offering recipients $100 to get a COVID-19 shot at any of its county-run sites, officials announced Aug. 17. Those who get vaccinated will receive the $100 with their first dose. County Judge Lina Hidalgo said the cash incentive is funded by the American Rescue Plan Act. “The consequences of this tragedy are all the more tragic when we remember there is a vaccine that is safe and effective and widely available,” Hidalgo said. “Harris County residents are losing their lives who don’t have to, and families are suffering who do not have to.” Those interested can find vacci- nation sites at www.readyharris. org or by calling 832-927-8787.
