Dallas hospitals are required to report the information pursuant to the City of Dallas emergency regulations enacted by Mayor Johnson during the local state of disaster. The reporting requirements are meant to provide data to decision-makers and information to the public regarding the medical community's capacity to handle an expected increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.

Here are the aggregate totals for Wednesday, as reported by the 12 hospitals:

  • Total beds: 4,343
    • Beds occupied: 2,267
  • Total ICU beds: 565
    • ICU beds occupied: 315
  • Total ventilators: 622
    • Ventilators in use: 188

Please note that the numbers represent a point-in-time snapshot and fluctuate throughout the day. Hospitals also may be able to expand bed capacity if necessary.

The City is seeking compliance from hospitals that have not yet reported numbers.
