Skip to comments.$21 Million Brooklyn Field Hospital Closes After Treating Zero Patients
Posted on 05/23/2020 1:36:04 PM PDT by Baladas
A field hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., built to deal with the coronavirus has been closed without treating a single patient. The $21 million facility was part of Governor Andrew Cuomos response to the growing number of coronavirus patients at New York City hospitals. That response included smaller facilities at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center and Stony Point (Long Island), and a huge, 1,100-bed medical center at the Javits Center.
All told, the state spent upwards of $350 million on facilities that were built but never used.

What is the story, here?
“... the state spent upwards of $350 million on facilities that were built but never used.”
But liberals care SO MUCH....so it’s no biggie. /sarc
“”What is the story, here?””
Cuomo simply loves wasting money - check out all the boondoggles he’s poured money into as governor. It’s an incurable disease with demonrats...
They spent only 1/3 of what the Houston one cost and they were open longer than the Houston one (about double the time).
Neither saw parients.
Meanwhile cuomo sent infected patients back to nursing homes and killed almost 5000 people...
Better to build it and not need it than to do nothing and then need it.
Money to connected parties no doubt.
Wonder is any recipients will be making campaign donations
If it only takes a couple days to put up and they did, why rush to put them up when theres no pressing need?
Cuomo wasn’t paid enough money under the table.
He sent 5000 pts to nursing homes.
Theyre homes. Not hospitals. They dont have procedure equipment. Staffing, personal protective equipment, ventilators
The residents are of the highest Susceptibility
Their families were not allowed in. Yet they pushed covid + patients in?
The Mercy ship was empty, the Javits center, this hospital
Cuomo is still governor? He belongs behind bars.
You must be in sales.
Like the Maginot Line, for example.
I think we have once again learned that private/charitable operations respond first and best (like Samaritan’s Purse) and government, with its top-down decision making, is slow, clumsy, and ineffective.
It doesn;t take long to build and it should have been built when it was needed.
The Gov got everyone into a panic after he the Mayor Pelosi , and Biden said this was nothing, go to Chinatown Trump is fear mongering he is a racist.
Well the Gov really screwed his state and the people over.
Not exactly at all. The Gov got into a panic and it does not take long to build one of these.
The Gov screwed up big time and should be held accountable/
It was the worst pandemic ever. /s
Between the USNS Comfort, the Jacob Javits Center hospital, and the Brooklyn Field Hospital, those places could have taken all the COVID-19 patients released from hospitals, instead of deliberately sending them to nursing homes to infect others. Cuomo indeed does have blood on his hands.
And these same people want us to take them seriously about global cooling/global warming/climate change.
