COVID 19 surge center at PSU ice arena
Posted on March 31st, 2020 by Speare Memorial Hospital

Community Update from Michelle McEwen, President/CEO

Speare has been working with the National Guard, the State, our regional Emergency Preparedness resources and Plymouth State University to create an Alternate Care Site at the PSU Ice Arena and Welcome Center. This site will serve as an extension of the hospital in preparation for a surge of COVID-19 patients.

Recently cots have been installed, supplies are being inventoried and moved into the facility, and many more planning efforts are taking place regarding logistics and staffing.

This is a significant feat, and sometimes overwhelming task. We are truly grateful for our partners that are helping us with these efforts!
