Team Member Update, September 12

Dear Team Members,

As of noon today, Memorial Health will no longer be on full housewide diversion. Our team has been working very hard in preparation for us to lift the diversion status.

We will resume normal operations on Wednesday, September 13. Team Leaders should ensure that their departments have adequate staffing. If a Team Member believes that he or she may be unable to report to work tomorrow, please notify your Team Leader as soon as possible.

Our team has done an outstanding job during the Hurricane Irma weather event. Even during difficult times, Memorial has provided excellent care for our patients and our community. And, of course, our thoughts and prayers will continue for all who have been affected by Hurricane Irma.

On behalf of all of us, thank you for all that you did and continue to do for the care of our patients.

Thank you,

Ramon Meguiar, M.D.                                    Karen Boyer, MHA, MBA, R.N.
