Liacouras Center No Longer Needed for Hospital Overflow

Kyle Ross - USA Today Sports

Here’s some good news. A morsel to chew on. A small ray of hope.

Temple’s Liacouras Center, which was converted to a field hospital for overflow COVID-19 patients, is being shut down because we’re doing a pretty good job of limiting the strain on existing resources.

From Philly Voice:

The city’s current progress with the coronavirus, along with the ability of hospitals to manage the case load, have made the field hospital in North Philadelphia unnecessary, Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley said Wednesday.

“With few patients, a stabilizing of the number of cases within the community, and sufficient bed capacity at existing hospitals, I do not see the need for a surge facility in the foreseeable future,” Farley said. “The city is grateful to Temple University for its willingness to host this facility. Everyone involved is thankful that we are at a point where it is not needed at this time. Please help us keep it that way, by continuing to follow social distancing and other guidelines.”

The Liacouras Center had capacity for about 180 patients, but it never ended up treating more than 10 at a time. The site will remain open until its patients have fully recovered and are ready to return home, Farley said.

Let’s give a roaring round of applause to Temple University for stepping up to the plate.

However, the greedy jabroni who owns Hahnemann and asked the city for a lot of money to use it gets a lump of coal in his stocking. He gets a stone cold stunner, rock bottom, tombstone piledriver, and mandible claw, in that order. Then he has to apologize for prioritizing money over benevolence.

  1. My sister was walking through said area of Brooklyn when she was stopped and harassed by Muslims trying to enforce sharia law. So sad how far the left has fallen.

        1. Everybody knows it’s you. Changing your name doesn’t mean it isn’t you anymore. Koo koo.

          Hey Pedo Joe – Your nuts.

          Read the story again. Try to get it right this time.

        2. It’s a religion of peace, as long as you aren’t an infidel. Otherwise, they kill you. Very peaceful

  2. Nice of Temple to do this. Sadly, we all know this is a liberal media driven hoax to kill people and destroy the economy.

    Trump had it under control. It was one lady from China and it was going to magically disappear. The liberal media wouldn’t let it go and are now inflating death numbers and pretending this is real. Now the greatest President in history is gagged and locked away (maybe with Mental Joe) and his ratings drop by the day.

    November will be a landslide for POTUS Trump. The Deep State can’t stop Mr Trump. The greatest ever. A real conservative who drives up the deficit.

    KAG 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

      1. Why do you think his own people are stopping this ratings victory? Most people viewing are laughing at him. His approval ratings are dropping faster than Mental Joe at a rest stop.

        His own people had to gag him. Lol.

  3. Most people think Trump handled this very well. It’s crazy what the media has become. Imagine how bad this would have been in our leader was afraid of being offensive….

  4. Like those medical ships, field hospitals in Washington State and the Javitz Center, all never needed. Waste of money. Waste of time and were just part of fear/safety theater.

    Don’t expect to see sports until 2022 if President Fauci has his way.

    1. It’s a religion of peace, as long as you aren’t an infidel. Otherwise, they kill you. Very peaceful

    1. Wait…..never mind.

      Just deny and see what happens. That is working out fine.

      It’s Obama’s fault. It’s THE WHOs fault. It’s the media’s fault. Nothing to see here. We’re good.

      1. Or……use the beds at the hospitals around the area that were empty. Plenty of area hospitals had a significant dip in patients during this time. Believe it or not Temple and a closed down Hahnemann. are not the only hospitals around.

  5. Don’t prepare for the worst but hope for something better.

    Instead assume everything will be fine and don’t prepare at all. Wait – that didn’t work. Damn that Obama.

  6. Ummmm, but the real story is that the hospital was never needed (other than for nurses and doctors to record TikToc videos). Nor where the medical ships, field hospitals in Washington State, the Javitz Center and others All of this was a waste. Thanks to the liberal medial creating fake panic with the hope that it will kill the economy and lower the chances of Trump being re-elected. Too bad it didn’t work. Idiots.

    1. you forgot to mention the 40,000 ventilators that the NY governor cried about every day for a month. I would love to know how many covid patients in NY actually went on a ventilator?

    2. The media shut down the world and crashed the economy to hurt Trump.

      Diabolical. The scientists and doctors were in on it too.

      It’s all a hoax.

      Next week I will be the King of Liechtenstein 🇱🇮.
      Shhhh….black helicopters.

      Let’s kill people and ruin lives. We must stop Donald.

      Pull your head out of your rear. Don did this to himself.
