Corpsmembers Help Set Up Surge Capacity Site
A former Sacramento sports arena is transforming into a medical site to make room in Northern California for a potential surge in patients.
CCC Placer Corpsmembers spent the two days, April 16 and 17, setting up hospital beds, IV stands, mattresses, and more at the Natomas Arena.
It holds a maximum of 400 beds and is among several sites setup across the state to relieve the strain put on hospitals from COVID-19.
For Corpsmembers, the work is a point of pride. As Emilee Warren put it, “everyone has their part and this is what we do.”
