The White House has said President Trump will continue to work from Walter Reed. One of the Rooms in Ward 71 is equipped with a desk for just that purpose
* President Trump was admitted to Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, for COVID-19 treatment Friday evening
* Walter Reed is the nation’s largest military medical center and has 244 patient beds, including 50 ICU beds
* The White House has said Trump will continue to work from the medical center
* He will stay in the Presidential Suite, one of six rooms reserved for high-ranking military offices and cabinet members
* It is ‘specially outfitted with protective devices and communications gear used in support of the president’ according to a former White House official
Now that he has arrived at Walter Reed National Medical Center for observation and treatment for COV-19, President Trump will be in the hands of 7,000 or so staff members including some of the nation’s top doctors.
Trump will stay in the hospital’s designated Presidential Suite, a lavish portion of one of its 88 buildings. Known as Ward 71, the Presidential Suite is one of six special patient rooms reserved for high-ranking military officers and members of the White House cabinet.
The suite is ‘specially outfitted with protective devices and communications gear used in support of the president,’ wrote Rear Admiral Connie Mariano, who served as a physician to both presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton and was director of the White House Medical Unit.
WNU Editor: OK. It’s looks nice. But the real value of the “Presidential Suit” is the “top-notch” medical equipment and personnel that are there.
