Patients requiring Oxygen and Special Needs Equipment during Hurricane Florence
Due to the uncertainty of the approaching Hurricane Florence, we are making preparations to deal with the impacts for our patients. We encourage our patients to stock up on non-perishable food items, water, flash lights, batteries, personal hygiene items, and enough medicine to last 30 days. For patients requiring oxygen or any special equipment, we are recommending evacuating west of I-95, if possible. Shelters will be open at Lenoir Community College, South Lenoir High School, and North Lenoir High School. Kinston High School will open as a shelter if needed for overflow. Kinston Community Health Center will be closed for patients and staff on Thursday and Friday.
