Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been turned into hospital and COVID-19 test centre

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been turned into a hospital unit to house he North Middlesex Hospital’s Women’s Outpatient Services as well as a COVID-19 test centre, the club announced on the official website.

This comes in the wake of the club reversing their decision to furlough non-playing staff. Announcing the decision to turn the stadium into a hospital unit, chairman Daniel Levy issued a statement, saying:

“We regret any concern caused during an anxious time and hope the work our supporters will see us doing in the coming weeks, as our stadium takes on a whole new purpose, will make them proud of their Club.”

Our state-of-the-art stadium has been repurposed to house the North Middlesex Hospital’s Women’s Outpatient Services, which will help free up space at the hospital to treat those suffering with the pandemic. The facility will also be used to treat pregnant women, in order to keep them away from the hospital.

The away dressing room of our stadium has been turned into a midwives’ clinical room and staff admin office, while interview rooms have been turned into scanning and consultation rooms. The media centre is to serve as the main reception, while the NFL away room has been transformed into a temporary maternal day unit.

In the statement, the club also confirmed that equipment had been installed at the stadium to “operate drive-through COVID-19 testing and swabbing for NHS staff, families and their dependents.”

With this, our stadium has become the first Premier League ground to be used for coronavirus testing.

Only last month, the club had made the stadium available to support the coronavirus fight. And, now, the move to turn the stadium into a hospital unit, needless to say, is a great gesture by the club.

The statement concluded by saying “Stay home. Stay safe. Protect the NHS.”
