Tidelands Health outpatient locations to reopen Tuesday, earlier than expected
In response to the improved forecast for our region, Tidelands Health outpatient locations will, to the extent possible, resume normal operations on Tuesday, Sept. 12 – a day earlier than expected.
The health system on Thursday announced a series of operational changes made in response to the threat of Hurricane Irma. Care at Tidelands Health hospitals has continued uninterrupted.
With the storm now expected to stay south of our region and no evacuation order in place, the health system’s outpatient locations will reopen Tuesday to serve the community. Patients will be contacted proactively about scheduled appointments.
Previously announced operational changes for Monday, including closure of the health system’s outpatient locations and business office functions, remain in place.
Tidelands HealthPoint Center for Health and Fitness will be open on Sunday, closed on Monday and reopen on Tuesday.
“Without an evacuation of our region, it’s important that we resume normal operations as soon as possible to care for our patients,” said Gayle Resetar, chief operating officer for Tidelands Health. “While we are certainly relieved and grateful for the change in forecast, our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Florida and Georgia and our fellow health care professionals who are working tirelessly on be-half of their communities.”
