A mammoth floating Navy hospital that was sent to New York after 9/11 will lend a hand to the region once again — this time to help in the battle against the coronavirus.
President Trump on Sunday again touted the USNS Comfort and its sister ship, the USNS Mercy, which will be activated on the West Coast: “These two ships are incredible . . . They have a tremendous capacity.’’
The Comfort, a converted supertanker, features 1,000 beds, 12 fully equipped operating rooms and up to 1,200 doctors, nurses and medical specialists.
It comes with an impressive array of medical equipment and services, including digital radiology, medical and optometry labs, a pharmacy, a CAT scanner and two oxygen-producing plants, according to the Navy.
The ship also features a helicopter landing pad and can accept patients via small boats while at sea.
It is finishing maintenance in its home port of Norfolk, Va., and should arrive in New York by mid-April, Gov. Cuomo has said.
The Comfort will treat non-coronavirus patients, relieving the immense pressure on the city’s hospitals during the mounting crisis.
The ship’s deployment comes as hospitals are clearing out beds, setting up new spaces to triage patients and urging those with mild symptoms to consult health professionals by phone instead of overrunning emergency rooms.
The Navy said it was “working to complete scheduled maintenance cycles and identify necessary medical staffing to deploy as soon as possible.”
