Comments on Hurricane Irma from FitnessOne

“Savannah fared better with Irma than with Matthew. However, there was more flooding this time and power outages were common. Three of my staff along with myself were on the “A” Team that stayed round the clock at the hospital from Sat. at 7:00 am until Tuesday evening to serve staff only.  FitnessOne is located on the hospital campus and was open from 5:00 am until midnight (sometime 1:00 in the morning) for staff stress management/relaxation and for staff showers.  We provided much needed services for our team members as the clinical areas ran 2 shifts and those off-duty needed a distraction.  During the hours of 7:00 pm -11:00 pm, there were as at least 10 people waiting for shower at all times.  We only had housekeeping services between 1:00 am and 4:00 am so our FitnessOne team cleaned the showers between TMs utilization and cleaned the facility throughout the day/night.  It was a very humbling and rewarding experience to serve our Team Members.”
