The 1000-bed field hospital for COVID-19 patients at Wattana Factory in Samut Sakhon is now 90% complete, and is expected to accept its first patients later this month.
Construction workers are now installing the electrical system for doctors and nurses’ offices in a COVID-19 field hospital extension at Wattana Factory in Samut Sakhon.
This 1000-bed facility is an extension to the 240-bed field hospital set up at Wattana Factory, which was the third field hospital established in Samut Sakhon for COVID-19 patients.
The field hospital extension has two patient buildings, each with 500 beds. A shared facility has been set up between the two patient buildings with 40 toilets and 40 bathrooms. The water supply and sewage systems for the facility were designed by the provincial public health office.
After construction started on 6th January, the 1,000-bed field hospital is now near completion, and is expected to be handed over to the province for field hospital operations on 25th January.
This field hospital will help relieve patient loads at other field hospitals in the province thanks to its higher capacity, and its location further away from communities and villages.
