COVID-19 Conversions: How to Turn Hotels into Hospitals

COVID-19 Conversions: How to Turn Hotels into Hospitals

Download The Full Report

With the anticipated surge in COVID-19 cases, public health officials are quickly weighing options to prepare multiple building types for conversion into temporary patient care facilities to offload low-acuity health system demand. HKS is creating conceptual plans for hotels, schools and venues to rapidly convert to patient care without requiring hard-walled construction.

The first report in our COVID-19 Conversion series is a concept study of how to convert a hotel, with the goal to care for low-acuity COVID-19 patients, while opening up hospital space for high-acuity patients. 

HKS collaborated with Mazzetti to provide MEP expertise to advise the team on safe environments for patients and staff.
