Field Hospital Of Tents Goes Up In Central Park [VIDEO]

Patch New York reports:

A field hospital is being built in Central Park’s East Meadow to expand Mount Sinai Hospital’s capacity as New York City hospitals are overwhelmed with patients coming in sick with coronavirus, city officials announced Sunday.

The Central Park field hospital is the latest example of efforts to expand hospital capacity at Mount Sinai and at hospitals throughout the city.

Mount Sinai is also re-purposing lobbies and other public spaces at its Upper East Side flagship into patient pods that could be up-and-running in the coming weeks, according to reports.
