COVID-19 field hospital dismantled


It was never used, but stood at the ready. Now the COVID-19 field hospital is coming down.

The hospital, at Lambton College, was a joint effort between Bluewater Health, Sarnia and the college.

The 150-field hospital was set up two months ago in case the number of COVID-19 patients overwhelmed hospital resources. Monday, the last COVID-19 patient left the hospital.

The non-clinical item, like the beds, will be stored for future pandemic use in the city.

Officials from all three organization credit the community for rallying to build the field hospital.
