Texas Children’s Hospital Has Begun Admitting Adult Patients to Expand Its Capacity

HOUSTON — The largest pediatric hospital in the United States has begun admitting adult patients to expand hospital capacity in the U.S. state of Texas as coronavirus cases and hospitalizations continue to soar.

Texas Children’s Hospital said Tuesday that it was admitting adult patients across its campuses to free up more hospital beds in the Houston area.

The number of COVID-positive hospital patients in Harris County, which encompasses Houston, has nearly tripled since May 31.

The move comes as Texas registered an 11th consecutive day of record COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state.
