The safety of our patients, visitors and employees is of the utmost importance. Updates about hospital and out-patient facility operations will be updated as needed.
Centra Care locations will be closed Sunday and Monday.
Patients can access urgent-care services on their phone or tablet through Florida Hospital’s eCare app from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. until the storm subsides. This service, which is for minor injuries and conditions such as allergies, infections, cold and flu, will be offered free of charge through Tuesday, Sept. 12. The Florida Hospital eCare app can be downloaded from Google Play or the App Store on iTunes.
Orange, Osceola, Lake and Seminole counties:
Preparations have been under way at our hospitals for the last several days to secure the buildings and ensure that all our patients and staff will be safe and comfortable during the storm. Arrangements have been made for full staffing of physicians and nurses throughout the duration of the storm. Generators are on hand, and water, food, linens and other supplies have been stockpiled to last through the storm.
Elective and non-emergent procedures have been cancelled from Saturday through Monday.
Patients whom physicians deem ready for discharge will be discharged before the storm arrives. Of course, many of our patients will remain here under medical care during the storm. While we understand the desire for families to remain with their loved ones during this time, we strongly encourage visitors to consider the advice of emergency officials to stay off the roads and remain at home until the storm passes.
As a reminder to the public, hospitals are not designated storm shelters. Hospital facilities, including parking garages, are not open to the public, and are reserved for the use of patients and employees only.
Florida Radiology Imagining locations will be closed Sunday and Monday.
Florida Hospital Medical Group physician offices will be closed Saturday through Monday.
