USNS COMFORT ARRIVES IN NEW YORK CITY

The Navy hospital ship Comfort sailed into the New York City harbor for the first time since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.

Its crew of 1,200 will “serve as a referral hospital for non-COVID-19 patients currently admitted to shore based hospitals,” freeing up space for medical professionals to tackle the growing pandemic. 

The floating hospital has 1,000 beds, a dozen operating rooms, a medical laboratory with  much more and could start accepting patients as early as tomorrow.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the ship’s arrival meant his city was “going to be able to do the life-saving work right now,” as 750 beds will be put into play immediately to relieve the pressure on our hospital system.”
