The massive army field hospital that hundreds of troops built inside a Seattle convention center last week will be dismantled before treating a single patient.
Instead, it will be redeployed to a state facing a more difficult battle against the coronavirus outbreak, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said Wednesday.
Nearly 300 soldiers from Fort Carson, Colo., and Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) near Tacoma, Wash., built the makeshift facility inside CenturyLink Field Event Center, normally home to the NFLs Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders of the MLS, for patients who do not have COVID-19.
"We requested this resource before our physical distancing strategies were fully implemented and we had considerable concerns that our hospitals would be overloaded with Covid-19 cases," Inslee said in a press release.

Maybe I am wrong, but it appears that maybe we over reacted and literally screwed the pooch on this whole Burn the House Down to stop a little water damage idea.
Youre looking at what happens when your society is governed by the whims of suburban women. It invariably ends up run in way that is transparently ignorant, ill-informed, impractical, and in ruins.
No doubt the lames will be whining PDJT over-reacted and caused panic over a “flu bug”. Too little to late. Too much to soon. Too little to soon. Too much to late. You know it’s coming.
Gov. Jay Dimslee frequently criticized Trump because he was being polotocally snubbed on the material and help he was given. Now he had excess respirators and never used one bed in the field hospital.
But no public retraction of his politicly charged complaints
Counter balance THIS news with open grave mass burials in NYC. Something smells rotten in Denmark.
And our government hires “experts” who apparently don’t know jack squat. It’s remarkable that these “experts” have decades-long track records of being incredibly wrong yet retain their jobs.
no- both Washington and NY are liberal crapholes but NY and NYC are just bigger liberal crapholes...
At this point, I’m so confused I wanna do like Lombardi and shout....”What the hell’s going on out there!!”
Is this like when Frank Burns made MASH move across the street?
they don’t call him Jay Dimslee for nothing... he got his photo op
here in WA, stay-at-home is til May 4 which is ridiculous...
Dimslee is a liberal hack owned by the public section unions, he has no incentive to reopen unless state gov’t runs out of tax revenue and gov’t employees have to be furloughed or cut... then we will open again.
“it appears that maybe we over reacted and literally screwed the pooch”
I hope you mean “figuratively”. Or I’m calling Animal Control.
Look to me like the military is getting excellent training at re-establishing mobile hospitals.
Thought Washington was the original hotspot.
Smells like fraud.
#OUAN Open up America Now!!
Its a clusterf@uck being pushed by scaremongers and TDS types to try to take out the President by crushing our economy and usher in socialism for the people.
Overly exaggerate till it becomes gospel, then when you over do it, just say social distancing did the trick, so we need more of it...till the election.
a massive waste of tax money.........pathetic unreasonable response....
