UMMC Response to Massive Mississippi Tornado | Mississippi Med-Com 

Produced by Jim Albritton | A massive and deadly tornado devastated Yazoo City and ripped across Mississippi on Saturday, April 24, 2010. This video focuses on the University of Mississippi Medical Center's role in transporting, treating and coordinating patient care during the crisis through Mississippi Med-Com. By the time the crisis had ended, Med-Com coordinated the transportation of 61 patients from storm-damaged counties to hospitals in Jackson, Memphis and Tupelo. Thirty-eight of those were sent to UMC by ambulance, helicopter and converted school buses. This video--produced on the day of the storm--mentions the 27 patients who had arrived at UMMC by 11 p.m.
