TidalHealth Peninsula Regional reconstructs portable hospital

1280 Tidalhealth Tent

SALISBURY, Md. – TidalHealth Peninsula Regional has reconstructed its inflatable portable hospital on its campus.

The unit, which was first constructed in March and in place for four months, is self-contained and features heat and air conditioning. It will once again be stocked with basic medical supplies and 10 patient care cots.

TidalHealth Peninsula Regional plans to use the regional medical station for patient overflow and surge control for a variety of conditions including the seasonal flu and COVID-19, as needed.

We’re told this move is strictly precautionary and proactive as the hospital is not currently at capacity.
