Coronavirus

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) ─ In a matter of weeks, the Rhode Island Convention Center was transformed from the state’s largest event venue to a field hospital for COVID-19 patients.

The now-complete triage center is made up of four wards, 28 pods and 600 beds.

As of Tuesday, the Rhode Island Convention Center is fully prepared to take in and treat COVID-19 patients if a surge in cases were to occur.

But how did we get here?

Lifespan and the R.I. Convention Center released a time-lapse video showing the construction process.
