Are you interested in including Bishop Grady Villas in your year-end giving plans? Then have we got the project for you!
As a result of Hurricane Irma and the Hollywood Hills rehabilitation center tragedy where more than ten residents died due to heat-related ailments this past fall, Governor Rick Scott issued an emergency order for all nursing homes and assisted living facilities to install generators with enough fuel to power 96 hours of air conditioning at 80 degrees Fahrenheit to critical living areas.
After legal challenges, the administration has since introduced a new non-emergency rule, which would require installation of a generator by June 1, 2018.
Please note that this order has not yet been finalized and does require legislative approval. That said, due to lessons learned from Irma, we do feel it is in the best interest of those we serve to have generator back-up, regardless if the legislature ratifies the order or not.
This generator, which will keep our residents comfortable in Dorsey Hall in the event of an extended electrical outage, will cost
$120,000, an expense not anticipated in this fiscal year’s budget.
Just as Christ brings light into our hearts this advent season, we ask you this holiday season to consider bringing light to Bishop Grady Villas in your year end giving plans. Any amount will make a difference to our bottom line and is deeply appreciated.
