Abstract

One hospital's experiences during the Hurricane Harvey disaster are reviewed and detailed using the strategic technique of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats analysis. Three leadership behaviors, adaptability, empowerment, and social justice, are discussed relative to organizational resiliency. This hospital's journey during Hurricane Harvey is analyzed using these leadership behaviors in a detailed strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats analysis format. Key lessons learned from this exercise are presented and are applicable to other disaster situations facing hospital performance.
