Depending on their location, most Jacksonville-area hospitals remained open as the storm passed, although some have restricted visitor access.

Baptist Medical Center Beaches and Baptist Medical Center Nassau and their emergency rooms will reopen Thursday.

Because of mandatory evacuation of the Beaches communities, patients were evacuated to sister hospitals and the two hospitals closed as Hurricane Dorian moves past Northeast Florida. But they will reopen beginning at 3 p.m., with their Emergency Departments, labor and delivery, critical care, progressive care and medical/surgical units first.

All other outpatient services and physician offices, which closed for the storm, will return to normal operations Thursday with regular business hours. Scheduled surgical and procedural services will resume at 7 a.m. Friday.
