A 1,038-bed temporary hospital aimed to treat non-COVID-19 patients is nearing completion at Stony Brook University.
The Army Corps, which is erecting four nonpermanent buildings near the university’s athletic fields, plans to open up the medical facility by April 19, according to Newsday.
This project, which costs around $50 million, is part of a New York state initiative to help relieve local hospitals that have seen a spike in patients due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Army Corps is also building or have built makeshift hospitals on Long Island at the SUNY Old Westbury, as well as the New York Expo Center in the Bronx, Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, the College of Staten Island, the Javits Center in Manhattan, and the Westchester Convention Center.
