Hurricane Information

Hurricane Information

When our area is under threat of a hurricane, BayCare's highest priority is the health and safety of our patients, team members and physicians.

In order to ensure our ability to focus on patient care, we are unable to provide a safe haven to the general public during a storm. We encourage everyone in the community to place ultimate importance on their health and safety and follow the instructions of your local emergency management authorities. 

BayCare Hospitals

If a hurricane is threatening our area within the next 24-48 hours:

  • We will provide specific information regarding our hospitals, as needed.
  • If you have a loved one who was evacuated to our hospital from another health care facility, we will work closely with the other facility to provide information. 

BayCare Facilities (non-Hospital)

In the case of severe weather events, BayCare outpatient facilities may be closed or may be operating on a limited basis.
