In the last seven days, Texas Medical Center has seen its first uptick in the total number of active COVID-19 patients hospitalized in its facilities in several weeks, from 399 on May 29, up to 536 as of June 4, according to medical center data.

This comes as the Greater Houston area has experienced an influx of new COVID cases, as between June 2-4, new daily cases increased by an average of 415 per day.

Of the 536 COVID-19 patients across the Texas Medical Center, 219 of those occupy Intensive Care Units, making up 16% of the medical center’s available base capacity of 1,462 units. When combined with ICU rooms occupied by non-COVID patients, less than 20% of the medical center’s base capacity remains, though it should be noted TMC has over 2,600 units planned to be available in case of a surge in COVID-19 numbers.

The medical center is also reporting 2.4% average growth in the number of COVID-19 patients occupying ICU rooms. That upward trend appears to have begun May 15, according to the medical center report.

As of June 4, the medical center is also experiencing a 5.5% average growth in the COVID-19 daily hospitalizations trend, which started May 18, but saw a resurgence May 29.

Additionally, the medical center has discharged 385 COVID-19 patients in the past seven days, a decrease from the week before, when the medical center discharged 421 patients.

COVID-19 patients that died during hospitalization at a Texas Medical Center hospital in the last seven days is 29, with 382 deaths total in TMC hospitals since the pandemic began.

The overall number of hospitalizations hit 750 throughout TMC hospitals in early April, when social distancing orders took hold.

Figures come from daily COVID-19 data released by the medical center, which includes numbers from member institutions spanning St. Luke’s, Harris Health System, Houston Methodist, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Memorial Hermann and Texas Children’s Hospital across nine counties, including Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery, and Waller counties.
