  • ICU and hospital bed availability for 3 consecutive days– 25.9% ICU beds and 25% med/surg beds – ICU 3 Consecutive Day over 20% and Med/Surg Beds- 11 Consecutive Days over 20%--We meet this metric
  • Declining 7-day average COVID hospitalizations in 7 of the last 10 days –9 days of COVID hospitalized patient decreases. – We meet this metric.
