Samaritan's Purse Deploys COVID Emergency Field Hospitals Cali and North Carolina

With COVID-19 cases on the rise across the U.S., the Christian humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse has set up two emergency field hospitals — one in Southern California and one in North Carolina — to help alleviate pressure on hospitals caring for patients infected by the virus.

Late last week, Samaritan’s Purse opened a 30-bed respiratory care unit in a space adjacent to Caldwell Memorial Hospital in Lenoir, North Carolina, where a team of 46 disaster response specialists — to include 24 medical professionals — are working with COVID patients.

Samaritan’s Purse also worked over the weekend to ready a 50-bed tent hospital in Lancaster, California, after officials with the Antelope Valley Hospital and the city of Lancaster reached out to the Christian nonprofit.
