As storms begin to creep up the east coast and begins to threaten the Chesapeake Bay, our plans have been established and reviewed to make sure we can provide care as necessary to the residents of Hampton Roads. We have focused on making sure we have proper staffing levels related to weathering out the storm in our facilities. If needed, Bon Secours will make arrangements to ensure that we have physicians available to care for the public in case of emergencies.
We have sufficient food, medicines, water, electricity and medical supplies to be self-sufficient in all our acute facilities, including nursing care centers, for a minimum of 96 hours.
We are prepared for possible flooding, loss of electric service, loss of water service, and any illnesses and/or injuries that may ensue after a storm of this nature. Please do not go to a Bon Secours hospital unless you are injured, sick or in need of emergency care.
For immediate assistance with minor medical issues visit Bon Secours 24/7 for free virtual doctor visits using code: FLORENCE.
