Memorial Hermann Healthcare System (Houston, Pasadena, Beaumont, Orange, and The Woodlands, Texas)
Since 1994, TGE has worked within this healthcare system's 16 campuses in the Houston area, and effectively communicated with state and local regulators to benefit both operations and compliance status. TGE has been retained to assist in development of various compliance plans and hazardous materials management, documents associated with asbestos compliance, indoor air considerations and disposal of waste streams generated from client-owned facilities.
TGE has also achieved a key role in this client’s superior Joint Commission Operational Reviews which apply to health care facility operation. Additionally, following Tropical Storm Allison and its ensuing flood, TGE was the lead environmental contractor to bring the Houston Medical Center campus not only back to operation, but managed the removal of hazardous materials from the facility and ensured compliant operations, in excess of $5 million in cost, within a period of 6 weeks.
