Emergency Room Plans To Be Open During Any Storms

Hendry Regional Medical Center Emergency Department in Clewiston will be fully staffed before, during and after Hurricane Irma. Staff is currently in the process of discharging or transferring all current inpatients prior to the storms arrival while they may still be safely transported.

Teams are in place and ready to respond both during and after the Hurricane to ensure medical services remain intact and we are able to serve the area and the needs of the community.

Hendry Regional Medical Center is NOT an ‘Essential Needs Shelter.’ Those with special needs (oxygen dependent, autism, dialysis dependent, hearing impaired, mental health impaired, wheelchair bound, etc.) must be pre-registered with Hendry County Emergency Management by calling 863-674-5400 or

The special needs shelter will be located at West Glades School, and will open at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 8th, 2017. Persons using the special needs shelter must have a caregiver with them while staying at the shelter. All others seeking shelter for Hurricane Irma may do so at LaBelle Middle School or Clewiston High School. Those shelters will open Friday, September 8, 2017beginning at 3:00 p.m.
