Transition plans underway

Morning update from Amanda Mauck, communications specialist:
We’re back at Sacred Heart this morning for our last full day at the hospital. Tomorrow, we’ll begin to transition out of here and do fewer surgeries. A team from Mexico is coming in tomorrow, so we’ll begin to hand over our work to them.
Drs. Anand and Eubanks, along with Crile, are in the triage areas this morning. I’m not sure what’s on the OR board today, but the Emergency Department was packed again this morning when we arrived. We usually get a rush the first thing in the morning, and then it tapers off later on. There are probably about 150 people waiting in the ED this morning.
Last night, some of team played a game of basketball (more on that later) while Dr. Eubanks fixed a hernia on a 12- or 13-year-old boy. By the time the basketball game had finished, the sun had gone down and Dr. Kelly left the game and scrubbed in to help Dr. Eubanks, who was working on another case.
Below is a picture of the triage tents outside the hospital.
