Ormond Beach hospital still closed due to damage from Hurricane Irma

Florida Hospital Oceanside to be closed until at least next week


ORMOND BEACH, Fla. – A beachside hospital on Florida's Atlantic Coast remains closed as officials evaluate the damage done to the building by Hurricane Irma.

The 80-bed Florida Hospital Oceanside was evacuated as Hurricane Irma approached the state earlier this month.

Hospital spokeswoman Beverly Ivey told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that Irma damaged the exterior wall of the building, which will remain closed until at least next week.

Patients are being cared for at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center.
