U.S. Army rolls into Seattle with field hospital built for combat

“I know my wife would be less worried,” Acosta, 27, says with a smile. A practical nurse specialist with a four-month-old baby at home, Acosta is part of the team of hundreds of U.S. soldiers setting up a field hospital in Seattle that will treat non-coronavirus patients, relieving pressure on civilian hospitals.
