Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital will make several adjustments to scheduling in response to Hurricane Ian.
The main hospital in St. Petersburg remains open but will postpone elective surgical procedures Tuesday through Friday. Only urgent procedures will be performed. Beginning at 1 p.m. Tuesday, inpatients will be limited to one parent/visitor on site.
All Johns Hopkins All Children’s Outpatient Care locations, including the main campus, will be closed Tuesday through at least Friday. Update: With the exception of the Fort Myers and North Port locations, The Outpatient Care Centers will reopen Monday, Oct. 3. The Fort Myers and North Port locations are closed indefinitely. The hospital will work to reschedule patient appointments as much as possible.
Johns Hopkins All Children’s is NOT a public medical shelter. Pinellas County may activate its shelters. Pinellas County families with children who have special medical needs should register for assistance. If an evacuation is required for your home area, we strongly encourage you to make evacuation plans for your family.
Johns Hopkins All Children’s employees should consult their supervisor if they are unsure whether to report to work. A limited amount of staff will ride out the storm on site with a focus on caring for the patients.
