Maui COVID-19 hospitalizations surpass delta surge, staff is “busy but nimble”
"MMMC’s census is very busy at over 95% capacity with COVID and non-COVID patient care needs," said Maui Health spokesperson Tracy Dallarda. "However, the hospital is not at an 'internal emergency' status as other hospitals around the state have declared. This current surge is stretching hospital resources and capacity and the Emergency Operations Center team is working around the clock to ensure we remain nimble and respond to immediate and potential needs. We received 12 FEMA nurses yesterday to help with staffing and care for COVID-19 patients. Ten additional FEMA nurses are expected next week."
