In an effort to alleviate hospital bed capacity, convention center Casa de Amistad (Harlingen, Texas) has been transformed into an alternate care site for COVID-19 patients who no longer require acute care, according to an article in Border Report.

The 13,000-square-foot site can house up to 96 private beds with oxygen line capacity when needed.

General contracting and program and construction management firm SLS (Galveston, Texas) converted the facility, according to an article in Valley Star.
