Hereford Regional Medical Center Manages COVID-19 Capacity Pressure with New Resources


Hereford Regional Medical Center announced its use of a large temporary extended care unit provided by the Texas Department of State Health Services. The steel structure supports a synthetic cloth material, provides capacity for 14 beds, and allows for high flow oxygen to be pumped into the unit.

Currently, HRMC administrators plan for the the unit to treat non-COVID-19 patients. The unit is fully staffed with nurses and physician medical staff.
