- Story Text: Healthcare providers worked through high winds and rain at a field hospital in Central Park on Monday (April 13). The hospital is part of the front line as New York battles the novel coronavirus, which has now killed more than 10,000 people in the state.
Samaritan's Purse, an international Christian relief organization, deployed its disaster response specialists to the city, including doctors, nurses, lab technicians, and other support staff to set up the field hospital in Central Park.
The tent facility - across from Mount Sinai Hospital on Fifth Avenue on Manhattan's Upper East Side - has 68 beds and eight intensive care units.
