To ensure patient safety, and as part of a systemwide health disaster plan, Baptist Medical Center Beaches and Baptist Medical Center Nassau have begun transferring patients from its facilities in preparation for Hurricane Irma.
The majority of Baptist Beaches patients are being transferred to Baptist Medical Center South, and Baptist Nassau patients are being transferred to Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville. The Emergency Center at Baptist Beaches will close Saturday at 5 pm, and the Emergency Center at Baptist Nassau will close Saturday in the early afternoon.
All Baptist Health 24/7 freestanding Emergency Centers (Town Center, North and Clay) will remain open.
Hospital Command Center officers felt it was in our patients’ best interests to evacuate them to other Baptist locations so their medical conditions and safety would not be compromised. Hospital representatives are coordinating the evacuation with local emergency officials. Transfers will be completed under medical supervision to maintain continuity of care.
If you have a family member who has been hospitalized at Baptist Beaches or Baptist Nassau, and the hospital hasn’t been able to contact you, please call 904.202.2000.
