Walk me through the move day and when will the first patients start moving who gets to be patient number one that's kind of exciting and then who moves well and and. Talk a little bit about how long you think the actual physical move we'll take her somewhere estimating it'll take us somewhere. Around 24 hours to move all of the patients who were at 7 AM on Friday. Disease. Bryant street women and Children's Hospital closed on new admissions and the bush I Children's Hospital on delicate street opened to on the admissions. Both the hospitals will be fully operational essentially for them. Majority of the day down across a hill and so we have all patients safely transferred over.

At any given time out we are we are very prepared for that transfer pay. He picked the first patient to move it it's kind of fly. Have we I don't. We will finalize them then manifests in the plans for the patients tomorrow so I'm based on patient need them and our pediatric icu. Will have the first patient that that definitely. The PD at OK so that's and it's yeah it would appear to me the most critical get moved first to say that that's correct and if that answered about curb with each in each of them share units now. We will start that with the sickest patients and couldn't but our sickest units that are most critically ill children will be moved first we'll start at their pediatric IC you know. Are he mentality psychology patients. And and then all move into our neonatal icu and those that that transfer patients and make you there's right now about forty patients. It will be transferred aren't from that unit but you know how to mall Bob of that and we know how to do that though it's so easy you know bad. That is absolutely. You know. I think that can be done center hospital transfers happen often often yet so so we have not only had the team from top to bottom practice this move. We had nine Mac. Mac moves over the course of the last few months or twice he's been we've had twelve map of them and while last few months. And not only have we practiced it but our teams are neonatal transfer transferred. Transport team as well there pediatric transport team they do this everyday now is going to be moving our patients. Total confidence and that's. This is so exciting I can't even believe it's happening on Friday. I sell for all of the girls that a pregnant right now and maybe dare date of expecting.
