With COVID-19 cases growing and ICU beds nearing capacity, many cities are turning empty hotel rooms into temporary Coronavirus isolation spaces and overflow hospital beds. The tvsdesign hospitality and healthcare studios teamed up to develop the checklist below to help quickly assess which hotels make ideal targets for conversion, and the level of care that would be available following a conversion. Not all hotels are ideal for hospital conversions, but the ones that are a fit have the potential to offer much needed space for patient care.

In the meantime, for those of you that are looking to hotels to meet the urgent need of more hospital capacity, we’ve provided this checklist to help you quickly evaluate the feasibility of a hotel to hospital conversion.
