The Florida Hospital Association Research and Education Foundation has established a Health Care Heroes Relief Fund to provide immediate financial support to hospital employees displaced by Hurricane Ian. 
 
“Hurricane Ian left a path of destruction throughout Florida,” the FHA webpage notes. “We are incredibly proud of the resiliency and strengths of endurance demonstrated by our hospitals and their staff before, during, and in the storm’s aftermath. Many hospital staff may have suffered incredible losses; and we recognize that our hospital colleagues, staff, families, friends, and communities face a long road to rebuilding.”
