On Thursday, May 12, OakBend Medical Center celebrated its 14th annual crawfish boil as a thank you to all workers at all of their healthcare facilities. After missing two years due to COVID restrictions, the annual crawfish boil was back in full swing. Fourteen years ago, OakBend Medical Center started this event with just three tables and 400 pounds of crayfish. This year, in 2022, a volunteer team of 18 chefs prepared over 1800 pounds of crawfish for all to enjoy. One of the last remaining independent hospitals in the greater Houston area, OakBend Medical Center looks forward to this annual crawfish boil, held during National Hospital Week. “We are so lucky to have such an amazing staff of healthcare workers and we love showing them how much they are appreciated,” said Joe Freudenberger, CEO. Of course, Joe is there, prepping all week and cooking all day for this festive occasion. He uses one of his old secret family recipes to treat everyone.
