Ocean Springs Hospital
3109 Bienville Boulevard, Ocean Springs, Mississippi 39564

Location: N 30.41413, W 88.78467

Oceans Spring Hospital shown in Figure 1 is part of the Singing River Hospital system. Similar to the Singing River Hospital building in Pascagoula, MS, the hospital building suffered minor structural damage. Noticeable damage included the equipment enclosure on the roof in Figure 1 and the broken window in Figure 2. The windows were lined with shatter-resistant window film. The small hole in the window indicates that the window might have been struck by sharp debris. The hospital appeared to be in full operation and had emergency generators on site.
