UCI Health builds mobile field hospital in parking lot

At UCI Health in Orange the extra beds are inside what’s called a mobile field hospital (MFH), which is a vinyl-like tent designed by the military. A team had been working on constructing the MPH since Sunday. … [Paul] Bhatia was one of the handful of students at UC Irvine who are also members of the Anteater Emergency Medical Services student organization who have volunteered to help build the MPH. On Tuesday, the team was busy working on the floor of one of two lavatories.
