Holland Hospital and Evergreen Commons Plan for Potential Patient Surge

Holland Hospital - Temporary Beds

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, Holland Hospital continues to proactively plan for a potential patient surge. As part of this emergency preparedness planning, Evergreen Commons will be available for Holland Hospital in the unlikely event the hospital exceeds its maximum inpatient capacity in the coming weeks.

“Holland Hospital and Evergreen Commons share the same mission to enhance the health and well-being of our community,” said Dave Knibbe, Evergreen Commons President & CEO. “Our partnership with Holland Hospital dates back twenty years. We know that offering our space during this public health crisis will best serve the community,” he added.

Holland Hospital would use Evergreen Commons’ space to set up extra beds to treat low-acuity patients if needed. The “point of dispensing” (POD) pack of beds will be quick and simple to operationalize.

"It is important to note, Holland Hospital continues to have an adequate amount of beds and is prepared to treat an influx of patients,” said Rob Schwartz, Holland Hospital Vice President of Quality, IT, HIM and Risk. “However, should the hospital reach maximum capacity, the community can rest assured knowing we have this space available to use as needed.”

Holland Hospital continues to urge the community to stay home, wash their hands frequently and follow social distancing guidelines to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve.
