Storyline


Volunteers erected tents and organized equipment at a temporary field hospital in New York City’s Central Park for COVID-19 patients on Monday.

Samaritan's Purse, the Christian based non-profit in charge of the hospital, expects all 14 tents and 68 beds will be in use when it opens on Tuesday.

Roughly 70 healthcare workers from around the United States have flown in to help, and lead doctor Elliott Tenpenny said that they have protective equipment ready for all medical personnel.

"We have full PPE (personal protective equipment) for everybody that's involved in this and a full stock of it that we're bringing ourselves, but also protocols and actions over and above even that to make sure that people are disinfected appropriately so that we don't harm any of other patients, spread the disease at all, or harm anybody else in the community," said Tenpenny.

The non-profit has been offering assistance during crises since 1970, and recently helped in northern Italy.

Shelly Kelly, a nurse practitioner from Tulsa, Oklahoma worked with Ebola patients in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. She never expected there'd be a need for a hospital like this in New York City.

"Things are very quiet here. The streets are not very busy. So it feels surreal but I'm very excited to be here. I feel honored to step alongside my brothers and sisters in the medical profession who are working really hard day and night here in New York City to provide the best patient care possible," she said.

Built with the city and state's backing, the hospital is an example of how New York is doing everything it can to increase capacity for an already overloaded hospital system. The apex of the crisis is projected to hit in a few weeks.

"We know that, while this is small in comparison to the big hospital standing right behind us, but if we all do our part, it really does make a difference," said Tenpenny.
