A federal emergency medical team is providing staffing assistance at a St. Louis hospital overwhelmed by COVID-19.
The 44 doctors, nurses and therapists from the U-S Navy are helping at B-J-C Christian Hospital for at least 30 days.
President Rick Stevens called their assistance a “beacon of hope for us” as we continue to serve the community during this unprecedented time.
Congresswoman Cori Bush met with the medical personnel and hospital officials Saturday and said, “additional relief has now arrived.”
Bush wrote Governor Mike Parson January 6th asking him to request the federal aid to address what she called the COVID-19 crisis in St. Louis.
