BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The weekly local hospital numbers were just released, revealing that Palm Beach County remains in critical condition. While daily numbers are expected to be released late today or early Tuesday due to a Palm Beach County order, the following numbers are released by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
Over the past week, at least 44 children under age 18 have been admitted to area hospitals for COVID-19. At least 2,731 adults have been admitted for COVID-19.
At JFK Medical Center: 1,320 adults were admitted for COVID-19 with 9 children under age 18. At least 294 patients were admitted to the hospital’s ICU in need of critical COVID care.
At Bethesda East, 925 adults were admitted for COVID-19 care with 13 children under age 18. At least 218 people were admitted to the Bethesda Hospital East’s ICU for COVID-19 critical care.
At West Boca Medical Center, 352 adults were admitted for COVID-19 with 22 children under age 18. At least 130 adults were admitted to West Boca’s ICU in need of critical COVID care.
Boca Raton Regional Hospital, which does not have a pediatric unit, reports 72 adults were admitted over the past week for COVID-19 care. At least 13 were admitted to the ICU for critical COVID treatment.
Delray Medical Center admitted 62 adults for COVID-19 care but did not report pediatric cases to the government. At least 13 adults were admitted to the Delray Medical Center ICU for COVID-19.
Hospitals in Palm Beach County, starting today, are required to report daily hospital census statistics, including COVID-19 patient counts, ICU counts, pediatric counts, and more. The order was executed last week by the County Commission. Daily hospital reports stopped when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, in early summer, ordered the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration to cease the daily updates.
