In order to brace for the impact of the storm, as of 6:30 AM today, the hospital will only be serving current patients and caregivers. We will reopen as soon as conditions improve. No other visitors will be allowed. Family members of staff working to care for the patients who are in the hospital will be asked to remain in the building at all times. We are asking those family members and staff members sheltering here for the next shift to limit their movements throughout the building. This is so that as much room as possible is available for patient care or transport should it be needed during the worst of the storm.
