Cone Health to close COVID-19 hospital

Greensboro, N.C.-based Cone Health is closing its COVID-19 hospital on March 5 and transitioning care to four other hospital campuses. 

The health system is shutting down the 116-bed Green Valley campus nearly a year after it opened on April 13, 2020. More than 4,700 COVID-19 patients have been treated at Cone Health, and most of them were cared for at the Green Valley campus. 

Though the health system is closing the COVID-19 hospital, Cone Health leaders are encouraging people to remain vigilant in efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

"We certainly don't want people to get the wrong impression that the pandemic is over," Cone Health COO Mary Jo Cagle, MD, said in a news release. "It is not time to throw away the masks."
