BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — It’s by no means back to normal, but ICU availability is looking a bit better in Palm Beach County and the total number of COVID-19 patients is down.
As of 6:16 a.m. on Monday, August 3rd, 2020, there are 507 hospital beds being used by COVID-19 patents in Palm Beach County. Just a week or so ago, that number was well into the 600s.
For ICU beds, utilization varies greatly throughout the area, but the headline is that 27.17-percent of all ICU beds are available in PBC. While not great, it is better than the near 25-percent availability that Palm Beach County had been experiencing for weeks. Health officials say availability of 25 percent or less is reason for concern.
BETHESDA WEST: 9 Adult ICU beds are in use, 1 is available.
WELLINGTON: 31 Adult ICU beds are in use, 3 are available.
WEST BOCA MEDICAL CENTER: 15 Adult ICU beds are in use, 1 is available.
DELRAY MEDICAL CENTER: 47 Adult ICU beds are in sue, 13 are available.
BOCA RATON REGIONAL: 23 Adult ICU beds are in use, 5 are available.
BETHESDA EAST: 25 Adult ICU beds are in use, 14 are available.
