In advance of the storm, and in the interest of safety of their vulnerable
residents, our Senior Care Centers in Brunswick and St. Marys arranged
to transfer their residents to other facilities away from the coast. Those
relocated residents will return when authorized by local emergency management
We extend our deepest gratitude to those team members, medical staff and
partners – including emergency medical services – for their
tireless efforts during and in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. As our
community begins recovery efforts, the Health System remains ready to
support the health care needs of the community.
