Alternate Care Sites (ACS)

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are evaluating hotel and arena facilities to convert them into alternate care facilities in response of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A facility that is temporarily converted for healthcare use during a public health emergency is an Alternate Care Site (ACS). The primary function of ACSs is to reduce the burden on hospitals and established medical facilities.

The process to create Alternate Care Sites includes:

  • Identify and obtain sites
  • Build and convert the space
  • Supply and equip units
  • Staff
Army Corps of Engineers

ADS provides operational equipment exclusively to the U.S. and allied Armed Forces, first responders, vetted government contractors, emergency responders and officers. We cannot sell to civilians.
