Samaritan's Purse Sets Up Tent Hospital At Pmh

Samaritan's Purse in partnership with Princess Margaret Hospital is setting up a 20-bed tent hospital at PMH to assist in management of COVID-19 cases. 

Samaritan’s Purse will work with PMH clinical staff to provide care to coronavirus positive patients. 

Clinical services are tentatively set to begin on Monday, October 19, for a period of three to six weeks, after which a transition from Samaritan’s Purse personnel to PMH clinical staff will occur. 

The hospital tent is located in the hospital’s parking lot “G” at the rear of the PMH Blood Bank. 

Samaritan’s Purse, a non-governmental organisation, has a successful track record of operations in The Bahamas, having partnered with PHA and the Ministry of Health to provide tent hospital operations at the Rand Memorial Hospital in Grand Bahama following the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, in conjunction with Grand Bahama Health Services.

Forever grateful for their help during this time and Dorian

Wonder how long we would have took to setup this up and how much the tent would have cost if it were a contract

Under the corrupt and grossly incompetent Minnis-led administration we all know that setting up such a tent medical facility would have taken forever and cost millions and millions of dollars.

LOL that yall PLPs could fix your mouth to call any government corrupt. Its too soon my friend. People still remember.

Unfortunately this tent facility will not be capable of providing the type of intensive medical care one might need and would ordinarily expect to get in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a properly equipped and staffed hospital.

This is a good thing. May the Good Lord bless the Samaritan Purse and all who make this possible.
