Rapid COVID-19 Tent Deployment to Your Location

emergency medical tent facilities

We know there’s little time to spare when fighting a pandemic. If your hospital or healthcare facility is in need of tents for coronavrius testing, or to treat patients with the disease, Lafayette Tents & Events will deploy medical tents to your location fast and efficiently. From planning and installation to take down and removal – we take care of everything so you can focus on what’s important.

Our three-step process ensures you’ll get the best tent or structure for your facility’s specific needs.

  • Chose a type of tent: Depending on your medical needs, we’ll help you determine the right type of clear span or century pole tent.
  • Develop a site plan: Next, we’ll help you develop a site plan. This includes the location of the structure, width, length, and floor plan.
  • Mobilization & installation: Finally, we manage every step of the process – including delivery, installation, take down and removal. We can keep staff and patients on-site or nearby after installation to make sure everything runs smoothly.

No matter where you are located, Lafayette Tents & Events is there. We deploy our tents coast-to-coast throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and more.

Emergency Medical Tent Options

We have a multitude of tents that can be used for pop-up field hospitals, drive thru coronavirus testing, and screening facilities. These tents can be conveniently located where you need them whether adjacent to an entrance or out in the parking lot of a hospital or healthcare facility.

Drive Thru Testing Tents

Our medical tents are an ideal choice to serve as drive thru testing sites for the coronavirus. We can supply medical drive thru testing tents equipped with one lane, two lanes or more depending on the demand for testing in your area. This is a convenient way to test people for the coronavirus without admitting them inside the hospital, where they are at risk of infecting other patients and hospital staff with the disease.

Customer Pick Up Tents

Our selection of pole tents, frame tents and clear span structures not only serve the healthcare industry, but they’re utilized by grocery stores and pharmacies for their needs, too, during this pandemic. Some of their uses, include:

  • Grocery pick up
  • Medical supply pick up
  • Prescription pick up
  • “Drive-up and go”
  • “Curbside” food pick up

To prevent the spread of the disease, healthcare officials recommend social distancing. Many grocery stores, pharmacies and restaurants offer curbside pick up if you call ahead. Using a temporary tent or structure for this service is a way to store items and protect customers and employees from the elements.

Employee Screening Tents

Our emergency medical tents can serve businesses as employee/customer screening facilities. Companies that fall into the “emergency services” category can take the extra precaution of testing employees for COVID-19. Testing reduces the risks of co-workers and customers coming into contact with someone who is infected. Our frontline workers are heroes and need to be looked after during this unprecedented time.

Patient Intake Facilities

Emergency medical tents are ideal to store medical equipment, treat an overflow of patients or test them for the coronavirus. For testing purposes, hospital staff can use one lane to check in patients, who are then escorted inside the tent and tested.

Lafayette Tents & Events’ array of tent and structures can be used as temporary field hospitals or medical facilities. Hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country are stretched thin because of the coronavirus disease, and many facilities need extra space for patients and supplies. If you’re interested in talking about a medical tent for your facility, give the tent professionals at Lafayette Tents & Events a call today.

I want to tell you how very pleased I was with both set-up and take-down of the tents. The installers were freindly, helpful and all around great guys. It was raining and muddy during the take-down, yet these guys were great! Thank you for all of the help.
