The National Chest Hospital officially opened in 1940 during the tuberculosis outbreak in Jamaica. It was at that time known as the King George V Sanatorium. This institution initially served as a facility for the isolation and management of patients diagnosed with tuberculosis. The National Chest Hospital has increased its bed capacity by 40% to manage COVID-19 patients. In addition, the hospital has implemented its surge plan where an additional twenty (20) beds were used for the management of COVID-19 patients, this would reduce regular operation. Currently, the institution continues to do its best to manage the patients.
