Hospital ER remains a construction zone six months after Sandy

CBS New York, April 30, 2013
Six months after superstorm Sandy crippled much of the Tri-State area, Coney Island Hospital is still struggling to keep up with demands. Half of the hospital's emergency department has been restored, but the other half is a construction zone. "We're operating about 40 percent of capacity to total number of beds. We have about two-thirds of the inpatient units open," Coney Island Hospital Executive Director Arthur Wagner told WCBS 880?s Marla Diamond. Prior to Sandy, Coney Island Hospital had 60 beds in the ER. As of Monday, there are 38 beds with an additional 10 coming soon to the critical care area.
