COUNTYWIDE, ICU OCCUPANCY APPROACHING 75-PERCENT THRESHOLD
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County ICUs are 74.82 percent occupied as of 5:15 p.m. Friday. According to Florida Health Department Director for Palm Beach County, Dr. Alina Alonso, 75 percent capacity is the magic number for concern.
In a late Friday afternoon news conference, Dr. Alonso said Palm Beach County hospital officials are doing everything they can to stay below 75 percent occupancy, but it’s getting close.
The goal, according to Alonso, is to always have room for the unexpected. That becomes difficult when availability is under 25 percent.
These are the ICU and related numbers which are accurate as of 5:15 ;.m. on July 24, 2020:
BETHESDA WEST: 7 Adult ICU beds in use, 3 available.
WELLINGTON: 31 Adult ICU beds in use, 3 available.
WEST BOCA MEDICAL CENTER: 13 Adult ICU beds in use, 3 available.
DELRAY MEDICAL CENTER: 42 Adult ICU beds in use, 12 available.
BOCA RATON REGIONAL: 28 Adult ICU beds in use, 13 available.
BETHESDA EAST: 25 Adult ICU beds in use, 14 available.
There are currently 573 people hospitalized in Palm Beach County with a primary diagnosis of COVID-19.
