When Devastation Hits
On May 22nd, 2011, a devastating F5 tornado struck the community of Joplin, MO. The tornado’s path of destruction caused numerous deaths, injuries and significant residential and commercial devastation. St. John’s Medical Center in Joplin sustained a direct hit. The nine story, 367 bed hospital suffered irreparable damage.
Johnson Portables Responds
Initially, tents were used for temporary medical facilities – an unsustainable solution for the care required by the community. In a short 22 days from enlisting Johnson Portables, materials for the interim facilities arrived in Joplin. Phase I was fully operational and occupied four weeks later.
Johnson Portables Delivers
By October 3, 2011 – less than 14 weeks after giving the approval to Johnson Portables – the full 31,000 square-foot portable health care facility was completed and occupied. The interim hospital includes 60 beds, emergency department, ICU, access corridors to a catheterization cab, mobile surgical and radiological trailers, and dialysis facilities.
Johnson Portables Delivers at Winston Medical Center
April 28, 2014, Winston Medical Center in Louisville, MS took a direct hit from an EF4 tornado.

Winston Medical Center will be operating out of the Johnson Portables building for about three years while the new hospital is constructed.
