AtlantiCare City Campus triage tent

Workers set up a temporary triage tent March 14 outside the entrance to the Emergency Department of AtlantiCare’s Atlantic City campus.

AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center has set up a temporary triage tent outside the Satellite Emergency Department at its Health Park in Hammonton, the company said Tuesday.

AtlantiCare set up similar tents on its Galloway Township and Atlantic City campuses March 14.

Like those two, the Hammonton tent would only be used if the hospital saw an "increase in patients as a result of the flu or other illnesses in an epidemic or pandemic situation," said Dr. Thomas Brabson, chairman of emergency services at AtlantiCare.

The City and Mainland tents have yet to be used.
