Plans for two Colorado alternative care sites for recovering COVID-19 patients have changed, according to an article in the Coloradoan.
A temporary hospital for non-critical COVID-19 patients that was slated to open April 18 at the Colorado Convention Center (Denver) has been delayed to May 15. The project has also been downsized from nearly 2,000 beds to about 600 beds as need has declined, according to an article in the Denver Post.
A second temporary medical facility, The Ranch at the Larimer County Fairgrounds (Loveland, Colo.), which was slated to be ready by April, has also been delayed to May 15. The facility is planned to have 200 beds.
