St. John the Divine Field Hospital
The Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City is the largest Gothic style cathedral in the world and the 6th largest church building. Begun in 1892, the cathedral remains unfinished. As of Monday, the 610 foot cathedral became an emergency field hospital. Nine medical tents capable of holding up to 200 patients will be erected in the nave; the crypt will be used as a staging area for medical personnel. The cathedral is across the street from Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital, which will staff the field hospital.
