In spite of Hurricane Matthew grazing the Jacksonville coast Friday, Oct. 7, we endured. Many patients and staff evacuated their homes and dozens of adults and children sheltered at our facility. Thankfully, the storm was far enough offshore to keep the strongest winds from reaching us. Flooding was not an issue at the Institute, but areas at the beach, including St. Augustine, experienced storm surge. We were back to business-as-usual on Monday, Oct. 10. Several patients completed their course of treatment that day and rang the chime. To all who went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our patients’ needs were met with as little disruption as possible, thank you.
