BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County and state health officials have made it clear: anything under 25 percent ICU bed availability is a problem. That problem lurks. As of 10:12 Friday morning, Palm Beach County ICU availability is just 25.36 percent.

While some hospitals are showing significant availability, others are not. The numbers — from the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration — are accurate as of the time of publishing. For those who will complain that the state isn’t specifying whether ICU beds are being used by COVID-19 patients or not, we point out that it’s irrelevant: if you need a bed and one doesn’t exist, it really doesn’t matter who is occupying it and why.

WEST BOCA MEDICAL CENTER: 15 Adult ICU beds in use, 1 available. (6.25-percent availability).

DELRAY MEDICAL CENTER: 47 Adult ICU beds in use, 10 available. (17.54-percent availability).

WELLINGTON HOSPITAL: 32 Adult ICU beds in use, 2 available. (5.88–percent availability).

BETHESDA WEST: 7 Adult ICU beds in use, 3 available (30-percent availability).

BOCA RATON REGIONAL: 23 Adult ICU beds in use, 18 available. (43.90-percent availability).

BETHESDA EAST: 20 Adult ICU beds in use, 19 available. (48.72-percent availability).

Again, countywide — including hospitals that we are not listing as they are in other parts of the Palm Beach County region — the adult ICU availability is 25.36 percent.
