The Florida Hospital Association has established a fund to help hospital employees who experienced significant property loss or damage during Hurricane Michael. “Our dedicated hospital teams were on the job – before, during, and now after the storm – helping their patients, colleagues and communities,” FHA President Bruce Rueben wrote today in a message to members. “Although the storm’s full impact is still being assessed, we know that many of our hospital colleagues lost homes or experienced significant property damage. Those in the Panhandle need our support now more than ever.” AHA is contributing to the fund. All administrative services are being provided in-kind so that 100 percent of donations will assist those in the Federal Emergency Management Agency-designated disaster areas. Visit FHA’s webpage for more information or to make a donation.
