Jacksonville, FL – As Hurricane Dorian approaches the Jacksonville coastline, Memorial Hospital is asking patients and family members to utilize only the ER entrance and to limit visitors to one per patient effective 7 pm tonight, Tuesday, September 3.
“Our goal is to keep everyone safe and well throughout the peak impact of this storm,” said CEO Brad Talbert. “Rest easy and stay safe during the storm. We believe in caring for our patients like family. Know that your loved ones will be in good hands until the storm passes and you can once again visit safely.”
Memorial Hospital utilizes a Fast Pass system during major weather events. Guests will enter via the ER and present their ID. This monitoring enables the hospital to be aware of everyone within the facility during critical weather events in order to ensure their safety. Security will be posted at the Women’s Entrance to assist pregnant mothers arriving in labor.
We will provide safety tips and updates throughout this weather event via our Facebook pages at Facebook.com/MemorialHospitalJax.
