The number of available intensive care unit (ICU) beds at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Plano is zero. No beds available. And this is the growing case for hospitals across North Texas.

Granted, it’s easy to imagine hundreds of rows of beds filled with COVID-19 patients, but the reality is that there are 28 patients with COVID-19 occupying ICU beds (and most hospitals don’t have a lot of beds in ICU; it’s already fairly limited space).

It may not seem like an imposing number, but amid the surge of the omicron variant, it’s enough to further put hospitals throughout Collin County at the edge of thinned capacity with thinner staffing.

Here’s what the picture of full-capacity ICUs looks like with more current hospital bed reports throughout North Texas, according to data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:

  • PLANO – Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital: 28 COVID patients, 0 available ICU beds
