We are thankful Hurricane Dorian passed us by with little effect on our beloved Golden Isles as other communities did not fare as well. With three hurricanes and one tropical storm hitting our coast in as many years, we are grateful for the reprieve.
On Monday (9/2), in response to the mandatory order for evacuation, Hospice of the Golden Isles transferred our Hospice House patients to hospice facilities further inland.
Our team worked diligently with home patients to make their evacuation and emergency preparedness plans, and we signed contracts with other hospice providers who were on-call to provide services for patients who traveled out of our service area.
On Thursday (9/5), the mandatory evacuation order was lifted and HGI resumed normal operations on Friday (6/6). Home hospice teams resumed patient visits and Hospice House patients are being transferred back to our facility.
Many thanks to the Glynn County EMA and our community for your support of our efforts to keep our patients safe through the storm.
