What is Field Hospital?

field hospital is a small mobile medical unit, or mini hospital, that temporarily takes care of casualties on-site before they can be safely transported to more permanent facilities. Field hospital is often used in military situations, but may also be used in times of disaster, as well as with traditional military medicine.

A field hospital is a medical staff with a mobile medical kit and, often, a wide tent-like shelter (at times an inflatable structure in modern usage) so that it can be readily set up near the source of casualties. In an urban environment, the field hospital is often established in an easily accessible and highly visible building (such as a manor house, restaurant, school, and so on). In the case of an airborne structure, the mobile medical kit is often placed in a normalized container; the container itself is then used as shelter. A field hospital is generally larger than a temporary aid station but smaller than a permanent military hospital.

Workers erect a temorpary field hospital for use by people unable to isolate and recover from COVID-19 in their own homes on a soccer field in Seattle suburb of Shoreline, Wash. The field hospital will provide up to 200 beds.

To help North Jersey hospitals deal with an expected surge in coronavirus patients, the state is working shortly on a temporary field hospital at the Meadowlands Convention Center in Secaucus, a facility that should take no more than a week to be ready for patients.
