Cloudbeds and its team created a platform to connect property owners and operators with health-care providers, providing facilities during this time of need. The hospitality professionals willing to open their facilities can provide their information via #hospitalityhelps to assist government and health-care agencies in need of open beds.
Adam Harris, CEO of the property-management-system company said that with each passing hour, they face an ever more acute shortage of available beds for the sick, and for health professionals who are fighting coronavirus.
The hotel industry has always been about people first and foremost. #hospitalityhelps is connecting our hotel customers and industry partners with government and health-care agencies to help people who need it most—by making more beds available.
Harris said the response to the launch of #hospitalityhelps has been overwhelming—with hotels representing thousands of beds responding within minutes of Sunday’s launch.
Cloudbeds President/COO Richard Castle said that this is a time when all of them must take action to do what they can provide by avoaid reaching an unprecedented breaking point in our health care system.
It doesn’t make sense that patients in need of beds should be without them, when there are hundreds of beds available around the corner. They have a team of people working around the clock to help alleviate the strain by mobilizing the hospitality community. As communities continue to act urgently to prepare, they hope that leaders in hospitality and other industries will step forward to support them.
