PARRISH MEDICAL CENTER | PARRISH HEALTHCARE HURRICANE IRMA RELIEF AND RECOVERY UPDATE

Parrish Medical Center | Parrish Healthcare was well-prepared for Hurricane Irma. During Hurricane Irma, PMC had hundreds of employees and medical staff onsite. The employees and physicians remained onsite around-the-clock for three days (Saturday thru Monday). They were relieved on Monday/Tuesday when it was safe for relief-staff to travel. PMC also gave shelter to our area’s first-responders— police department and Coastal Ambulance personnel.

The medical center sustained no structural damage and is back to normal operations.

As expected, the emergency department is seeing an influx of patients needing urgent and emergent treatment after the storm. Most common injuries and conditions being treated post storm are cleanup effort injuries, generator-related carbon monoxide poisoning, cardiovascular-related conditions, as well as those who need care related to pre-existing chronic conditions with no other options until access to medical offices and area pharmacies is restored. On average, PMC’s emergency department treats more than 44,000 people a year, with an average of 120 patients per day.

The Parrish Medical Group Primary Care Practice (Titusville Family Practice), located inside the Parrish Healthcare Center at Titus Landing, has set up a temporary primary care clinic at the Parrish Senior Consultation Center, 805 Century Medical Drive in Titusville. This temporary clinic will help ensure PMG-TFP patients do not have any interruption in primary care.

Parrish Healthcare has also set up a temporary day care center at Parrish Medical Center’s conference center, for the children of Parrish Healthcare employees who must work throughout the recovery efforts. The temporary day care center is also available to current clients of The Children’s Center.

Parrish Healthcare also provides its employees with access to various Employee Assistance Programs, including a hardship fund, for those who may have experienced personal damage to their homes.
