WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – Florida’s first mobile field hospital has been deployed to Winter Haven Hospital.
BayCare Health System appreciates the support of Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida Division of Emergency Management in providing additional resources to help our community’s fight against COVID-19.
The mobile unit, which has a 15-bed capacity, has been situated next to the new wing of the hospital, with easy access to the hospital facility. State and hospital team members are working together over the next several days to finalize the unit’s set-up, from providing connections for water, power and other infrastructure to installing appropriate patient equipment.
