$21M NYC Field Hospital Closes After Seeing No Coronavirus Patients

A $21 million field hospital in Brooklyn, New York, authorized by Mayor Bill de Blasio opened and closed without seeing any patients.

The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook was one of several makeshift hospital sites throughout the city intended to relieve the city’s overcrowded hospitals brimming with coronavirus patients, the New York Post reported.

De Blasio announced plans for the 750-bed $20.8 million field hospital in Red Hook on March 31, one day after the USNS Comfort hospital ship arrived in New York to aid in the fight against coronavirus.
