Surfside, Sanctuary, Coconut Point, HealthPark Commons, and the Regional Cancer Center will remain open.

They will redeploy as many employees from the other facilities as possible.

As the volume in outpatient facilities has declined, there has also been an increase in the need for additional employees in our inpatient facilities, and many employees from the outpatient setting will be able to help ease the burden in the hospitals.
