AdventHealth Centra Care clinics in Central Florida are now closed for in-person visits Wednesday and Thursday. The hospital system's free-standing imaging centers and sports medicine and rehabilitation centers are also closed during the same period.

Video visits at Centra Care remain available for non-emergency patients through 8 a.m. on Friday. The visits are being offered for free during Hurricane Ian as a public service to help keep our communities safe.

Extensive preparations deployed

AdventHealth is deploying its extensive safety preparations as Hurricane Ian approaches the region.

The health system has stockpiled thousands of gallons of water and generators are standing by to run the hospital on emergency power if necessary. Sandbags are prepared should they be needed to secure doors and windows.

“The safety of our patients, visitors and team members is of the utmost importance,” said Dr. Neil Finkler, Chief Clinical Officer of AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division. “Our patients can rest assured that the hospital is a safe place, that we are fully staffed and will continue to deliver our advanced level of care throughout Hurricane Ian. All of our hospitals and freestanding ERs are open for our community’s emergent health needs.”

Residents are reminded that hospitals are not public shelters. Residents should contact their county’s emergency operations center for locations of public shelters. While we understand the desire to remain with loved ones during this time, we strongly encourage potential visitors to consider the advice of emergency officials to stay off the roads and remain at home until the storm passes.
