As Hurricane Irma moves toward our area, St. Cloud Regional Medical Center has taken steps to continue operations and keep their patients and staff safe. Currently, the hospital remains open, and their skilled physicians, nurses and other employees are equipped to continue caring for patients in the hospital, as well as those who may come with emergency medical needs.
Based on current weather predictions St. Cloud Regional Medical Center is anticipating going on lockdown at 5:15pm today. This timeframe should provide enough time for patients being discharged, visitors, and any team members or family of team members the ability to travel safely home or find other accommodations prior to county curfew taking affect at 7pm tonight. A lock down means all entry or exit points, except the Emergency Room entrance, of the hospital will be locked and non-accessible.
Our Emergency Department will continue operating and remain open patients throughout the Hurricane and inclement weather
