YONKERS, NY – December 12, 2020 – National Public Radio has created a new platform that allows the public to see what percentages of their local hospitals’ beds are filled by COVID-19 patients.

Those percentages are being used by New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo to determine whether hospitals are under stress in their ability to handle an upsurge in COVID patients, which in turn will determine whether the state should impose further restrictions on their surrounding communities.

According to the data reported on the new site, both St John’s Riverside Hospital in Yonkers (which also includes the Dobbs Ferry Pavilion) and the Westch­ester Medical Center in Valhalla have 12%.

NewYork State considers 10% as an indication that a hospital is “under strain,” while 20% would indicate “extreme stress.”

There are no COVID-19 patients housed at the Dobbs Ferry Pavilion, which is virus patient free, as all such patients are at the main St. John’s Hospital in Yonkers, NY.

The most stressed facility in Westchester County is the Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt Manor with 29% of its beds occupied by COVID-19 patients.

How Your County And Its Hospitals Are Doing

Note

Averages calculated by summing the seven-day average for each individual hospital, then dividing by the number of hospitals reporting data in a county. No data may indicate a sample size of fewer than four patients or hospitals that did not report statistics to the Department of Health of Human Services.
