The U.S. Navy is landing at Indiana’s largest hospital to lend a helping hand.
A 23-person U.S. Navy team will be answering a call for help from IU Health Methodist Hospital, just north of Indy. The team includes doctors, nurses, and respiratory therapists who have been reassigned temporarily at the request of FEMA. IU Health had requested the help to relieve staffers who are overwhelmed and working long hours amid a surge in COVID-19 cases.
The Navy team will work at the hospital for a month in the units where the need is greatest.
