    After carefully evaluating the best available information, we have decided that all Baptist Health South Florida hospitals, outpatient facilities, and support services will operate on a business-as-usual schedule for the duration of the weather that we will likely experience later this weekend.

    I’d like to thank our employees in advance for their dedication and expert care for the nearly 1,000 patients who will occupy our hospital beds, emergency departments, and urgent care centers during this storm. You – our patients, families and friends – are in our very capable hands, no matter what the weather.

    Tropical Storm Isaac is a good reminder that we do live in the tropics, and tropical weather is part of our life here. This weekend will bring stronger than usual winds and rain, so give yourself extra time and use caution when out and about. It is important to discuss your family plan during storms, which includes things like child care, location of important documents and emergency plans in case of evacuations. Isaac will give many of us a chance to dust off the plans that may have been put aside since the last storm rolled through.

    Finally, today is the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, a life-changing event for many of us.  For those who were part of the response and recovery, we thank you for your service and sacrifice.  Your efforts have not been forgotten, and our community is stronger today because of you.
