When COVID-19 in Virginia gets closer to the peak, (sometime around the end of May according to the Governor) more hospital beds will be needed. First, there will be capacity added to existing hospitals. Also a large new INOVA hospital is scheduled to open in Loudoun County on April 25th. That facility will add to existing hospital beds in NOVA.
Once all the existing hospitals have been expanded and filled to capacity three more facilities will be converted for use as hospitals. They are The National Conference Center in Loudoun County, the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Fairfax County, and George Mason University in the City of Fairfax.
According to Wikipedia the National Conference is huge and could accommodate thousands of hospital beds.
The National Conference Center (The National) is a corporate training facility in Leesburg, Virginia. It hosts over 14,000 individuals per month and comprises 265,000 square feet (24,600 m2) of meeting space. The center contains 250 conference rooms, an athletic facility, and 917 guest rooms.
It is projected The National will be used for 1,000 hospital beds.
Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly is another large facility with 130,000 square feet. It’s an open space that could be converted to at least 500 hospital rooms.
It is projected that George Mason University could house at least another 500 hospital beds.
