Hospital Identified as Virginia Hospital Center - Arlington

Hospital Identified as Virginia Hospital Center - Arlington

From the Arlington County After Action Report:

Quote:
Immediately after the 9:38 a.m. impact of American Airlines Flight #77 on the Pentagon, the Arlington County Emergency Communications Center (ECC) began contacting area hospitals, including Virginia Hospital Center - Arlington, Inova Alexandria Hospital, Inova Fairfax Hospital, Washington Hospital Center, and George Washington University Hospital.
<snip>
By 2:00 p.m., 106 surviving victims requiring treatment had been transported to hospitals and other treatment facilities. Fifty-seven patients were treated and released. Forty-nine were admitted for further treatment.
<snip>
Virginia Hospital Center - Arlington immediately implemented its disaster plan upon receipt of a telephone call from an Arlington EMS Supervisor en route to the Pentagon.
According to Catherine Hughes in the video, Arlington Hospital admitted 26 casualties. Considering that 26 from 106 casualties is 1/4 of the total and five primary hospitals were used -- this actually seems to make sense.
