The IAHSS Council on Guidelines has developed a DRAFT Guidance document on Alternate Care Sites- Medical Surge Capacity. This draft guideline was created for IAHSS members and an American Institute of Architects (AIA) national task force. The AIA is working to quickly develop guidance to support what is happening around the US to turn convention centers, hotels, and other facilities beyond their hospital campus into alternative care sites. 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Alternate Care Sites (ACS) have been created to permit healthcare officials to provide medical care for injured or sick patients. This document has been created to provide guidance to healthcare facilities to help them prepare for Alternate Care Sites.
