When Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that the Baltimore Convention Center would transform exhibit space into a medical station for patients recovering from COVID-19, Willwork Global Event Services (Willwork) was ready to hit the ground running in support of that effort.
“We’ve been aggressively seeking ways to apply our time and talent in support of alternative care operations being set up across the country”, says Dave King, President of Willwork. “Partnering with the State of Maryland to build a temporary hospital facility is a perfect fit for our operation”, King adds, “and is in line with multiple other projects we are working on across the country”.
Willwork, an Events General Service Contractor based in Boston, MA, is a collective body of flexible-use inventory, highly skilled workers, and community-oriented leadership. William Nixon, Jr., CEO, says that “this is just one of many steps we are taking toward transitioning our event production expertise into areas where fast, efficient and compassionate help is urgently needed. We have resources strategically allocated across the country - from Los Angeles to Washington, DC - ready for deployment in short order.”
According to local news reports, this alternative care facility is expected to be open by April 24.

Today I toured the state’s field hospital site at the Baltimore Convention Center, where COVID-19 patients who no longer require hospitalization will be able to complete their care and fully recover. I want to again thank the Maryland National Guard and the health care systems and allied agencies who stood up this impressive facility so quickly.
During my visit, I announced additional actions to slow the spread of this virus, including a first-in-the-nation strike team plan to support our nursing homes. Learn more: https://governor.maryland.gov/…/governor-hogan-activates-s…/
