Herman Construction Group has completed several fast-track build-outs of COVID-19 emergency response field hospitals and surge hospitals in California, one in Escondido and a second in Tulare County. The company began the projects early in April and completed both within two weeks.
The projects included a build-out of the 203-bed Federal Medical Station at Palomar Medical Center Escondido and construction of a 246-bed Alternate Care Facility at the Porterville Developmental Center in Tulare County for the state and federal government. The Alternative Care Facility will care for non-COVID-19 patients who are less sick, allowing hospitals to treat more severe cases. The projects add nearly 450 hospital beds to the state’s inventory to treat COVID-19.
