...The Tidal Basin team did an excellent job planning and executing the Evacuation Workshop in a way that was engaging and informative. Our staff was energized and still talking about how great the workshop was days later. We look forward to our next opportunity to work with the Tidal Basin Healthcare team.
I've been dealing with Tidal Basin for over two years in my positions as the Emergency Manager for Miami Beach. During that time, Tidal Basin has never disappointed me and has always exceeded my expectations. They are always available for consult, very easy to communicate with and are responsive to our requests. They are in tune with the City's fiscal responsibilities and therefore have stayed within the original budget. Just yesterday, we had an ad-hoc meeting with the CEO, Daniel Craig and his staff regarding COVID-19 reimbursement. They team not only reinforced our thoughts but because they stayed up to date on all Federal funding programs, they added pertinent information that we were not aware of.
