Emergency Field Hospitals


Following the publication of my most recent article in which I mentioned the desirability of having an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the National Referral Hospital (NRH) to treat any person that might be found suffering from coronavirus and needing specialist and lengthy hospitalization, I received a letter telling me of a US company that specializes in supplying emergency field hospitals.

My correspondent said having a tent solutions could prove to be a more affordable and an easier transport option and meet the NRH’s emergency requirements.

The company, Western Shelter, provides emergency field hospitals throughout the world and lists its products and services via its international website –


I will post some images of the type of field hospitals Western Shelter is currently supplying to countries tackling the Covid -19 threat and finding the need for emergency hospitals.

Yours sincerely
