Field Hospital Set Up At Freeman Coliseum

As hospitals in Bexar County near their capacity with COVID-19 patients, a field hospital has been set up at Freeman Coliseum in case it is needed for overflow.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg said there are only about 10% of beds still available and hospitals in the San Antonio area may only be a week or so away before they run out, if the surge doesn't subside.

A 250-bed facility is being set-up at Freeman Coliseum to be used for overflow.

Bexar County Commissioner Justin Rodriguez tweeted new pictures of the facility this morning.

"If you’re not already #MaskingUp now’s the time. Our hospital system is stressed. At current pace, we’re days away from reaching maximum capacity. Wash. Mask. Distance. Repeat. Stay safe, y’all!" said Rodriguez.
