Tallahassee Reports requested and received information today from Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (TMH) and Capital Regional Medical Center (CRMC) about the number of patients currently hospitalized for COVID-19.
As of Monday, June 1st, TMH reported five COVID-19 patients and CRMC reported nine COVID-19 patients for a total of 14 currently hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Leon County.
The current data from the Florida Department of Health indicates a cumulative total of 46 COVID-19 hospitalizations in Leon County.
Back in early April, based on the University of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 Hospital Impact Model for Epidemics (CHIME), officials feared that hospital resources would be hit with approximately 2,400 hospitalizations by early June. These projections included hospitalizations from Leon and 10 surrounding counties.
Officials at the time indicated that the region had a capacity of approximately 900 beds.
