North Texas medical leaders meeting to discuss turning Dallas convention center into pop-up medical facility

Morning After

DALLAS, Texas (KDAF) — The Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council is meeting on Thursday to discuss turning the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas into a pop-up medical facility. The move is in response to the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across North Texas and the state.

The space would be used if space in hospitals and ICUs is overrun.

The convention center was initially setup as a medical facility earlier in March when the pandemic first started in North Texas, however it was not needed at the time.
