Nursing Home Power Updates

September 15, 2017 - 7:00 p.m. EST

"Florida Health Care Association continues to receive updates from nursing homes throughout the state, including some that had not been able to report to us previously. As of the afternoon of Friday, September 15, approximately 3 facilities out of the 683 nursing homes in the state currently do not have commercial power services restored (1 of which had been previously evacuated). This is a rapidly developing situation and we will update this statement to reflect the most recent information we receive. FHCA and its member facilities remain committed to providing vital support to meet the immediate needs of residents and staff until this crisis has passed."
