COUNTY JUDGE LINA HIDALGO
INVESTIGATES: Conversations underway to dismantle costly temporary hospital at NRG Park
There weren’t any others, it was: take it or leave it," Hidalgo told KPRC 2 on April 7. County Commissioner Jack Cagle, who voted for the costly project, said NRG Park was the only avenue explored. County officials, including the health department and NRG representatives, met Wednesday morning to discuss the future of the temporary healthcare facility at NRG Park. Harris County signed a partnership with Deer Park-based company, Garner, to run the hospital, which is earmarked to serve as an overflow if the system became overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients. Judge Lina Hidalgo said she is thankful the county didn’t need to use the facility for this first round of coronavirus cases.
