More than 450 storm refugees from NCH employees' families and patient family members were moved out of the Telford Center at the Downtown Baker Hospital into corridors on the fourth and fifth floors, according to an article on the Naples News website.
The evacuees were moved to an area near the IT department for safety, because the Telford Center windows are not hurricane-proof.
A human chain of NCH staffers, including the president and chief executive officer of NCH, moved 75 evacuees at a time.
Water intrusion was starting on the first floor of Downtown a few blocks from the beach where an impending storm surge has the incident command team focused on preparation.
