A beachside hospital in Ormond Beach remains closed as officials evaluate the damage done to the building by Hurricane Irma.

The 80-bed Florida Hospital Oceanside was evacuated as Hurricane Irma approached the state earlier this month.

Hospital spokeswoman Beverly Ivey tells The Daytona Beach News-Journal that Irma damaged the exterior wall of the building, which will remain closed until at least next week.

Patients are being cared for at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center.
