In these hours before the hurricane strikes, I wanted to send you all a note to let you know I look forward to the other side of this experience and cannot wait to share stories how we all came together for our familes, friends, communities, and each other. Tampa Bay and Healthplan Services have been through many storms during the past 45 years, and we have emerged Tampa Strong.
We do not need to fear because we will get through this side by side and step by step. As soon as Irma is an unpleasant memory, we will roll up our sleeves, fix what needs to be fixed, and move forward stronger and more together than ever.
