What You are Looking At
So over the past week and up until Friday April 10th, the department of Health and Human Services is setting up a pop-up hospital. This is the Billie Jean King Tennis Center where the US Open for Tennis is played. They have subsequently made it into a 500 bed hospital. We will have everything including: pharmacy, radiology, nurses, paramedics. This will function like a war-time hospital. It gets frequently referred to as a "mission". Many of the people helping up organize this all are former military. In our group today going through the facility we had plumbers, electrictions, IT specialists, logistics people. It has been truly eye opening as to what we are doing. We will begin taking patients from other hospitals on Friday morning. Then we will be working 12 hour shifts for as long as your contract is scheduled. I will be adding to this blog/website periodically while trying to maintain sleep and health.
