Connecting hotels and hospitals with urgent needs for space
Right now, all around the country, there is an urgent need for safe, clean and immediately available accommodations that can be used as-is or adapted to provide much needed capacity for a variety of hospital needs.
This website has been created to provide hospitals and other care providers with a forum to communicate their space needs; and for hotels and others with multi-unit or high-occupancy residential facilities to indicate their capacity and willingness to consider these urgent needs.
To post a space need or availability to our open-access database, please complete the appropriate form.
