As Palm Beach County sees an uptick in coronavirus cases, the number of intensive care unit beds available in area hospitals is dwindling, according to state data.
Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration tracks the number of hospital beds available statewide.
Right now, the AHCA reports Palm Beach County with about 18% of adult ICU beds available, Martin County with 63%, St. Lucie County with almost 9%, Indian River County at 53%, and Okeechobee County at 12%.
Looking closer at Palm Beach County hospitals, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, Palms West Hospital, and Wellington Regional Medical Center have zero adult ICU beds available, according to the AHCA data.
However, Alan Poston, a spokesman for Wellington Regional Medical Center, disputed those numbers, saying the hospital has “plenty of beds.”
