Mount Sinai Health System officials are tentatively planning to close New York City's Central Park field hospital in May, a source familiar with the Mt. Sinai Health Systems operations tells CNN.
As of today, there are 18 patients at the field hospital, and Mount Sinai officials are tentatively planning to close it the second week of May if the need continues to fall.
About the field hospital: Central Park's East Meadow on the Upper East Side was converted into a 68-bed field hospital designed as a respiratory care unit. It took its first patients at the beginning of April.
