Tampa area hospitals prepared for all possibilities before deciding whether to evacuate, according to an article on the News Channel 8 website.
Tampa General Hospital (TGH) has a unique situation, the article said. It is on an island and would be the first to experience any rising waters.
Rather than move patients, they’ve moved machinery. The air conditioning moved to the second floor. Power is on the third floor.
TGH also has its own version of an emergency operations center.
