Atlanta, GA - Today Governor Brian P. Kemp announced the completion of the alternate care facility at the Georgia World Congress Center for COVID-19 patients if the need arises. The 200-bed facility will be anchored in partnership with Grady Health System and provide treatment to non-critical COVID-19 patients.

"I greatly appreciate the work of the Georgia National Guard, Grady Health System, and our private sector partners to get this facility completed," said Governor Kemp. "Our team has been laser-focused on expanding hospital bed capacity so that no Georgian infected with COVID-19 goes without the care they need, and the alternate care facility at the Georgia World Congress Center is a solid insurance policy as we prepare for any scenario."
