Update on utilization of general medical beds and ICU beds from Texas Medical Center in Houston. They are projecting that they will access sustainable surge capacity starting this week, and if current Covid trends continue, exceed that capacity in about two weeks.
Currently 27% of Texas Medical Center’s ICU beds are occupied by patients with Covid disease.
The TMC’s projections on bed resource utilization, and their projected shift to surge capacity, assumes a similar demand for non-Covid procedures as today – i.e. the scenario if there is no change in elective procedures.
