Atlanta, GA – The State of Georgia has executed a contract with PAE and AMI to build a 200-hospital bed alternate care facility at the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC).
“Across Georgia, we have partnered with existing healthcare infrastructure to greatly expand our surge capacity, and now we have a dedicated team building out a temporary facility at the Georgia World Congress Center for potential COVID-19 patient surge,” said Governor Kemp. “The team will utilize AMI medical staffing to prepare for surge leading up to the state’s projected peak date, currently set for April 26, 2020 according to IHME. This project at GWCC will leverage existing support through nearby Grady Memorial Hospital with initial operating capacity available in one week. Over the next few days, Governor Kemp will provide more details as construction gets underway.
