AbstractOn March 30, 2020 the USNS Comfort arrived in New York City’s Harbor on a mission to provide assistance to the city’s overwhelmed hospitals in the midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic. The USNS Comfort is a Navy Hospital Ship with 1,000 beds and 12 operating rooms, which has been deployed in times of crisis and peace around the world. The USNS Comfort is stationed in Norfolk, VA but for a significant portion of her life (1988-2013) as a hospital ship, she was stationed in Baltimore’s Port. The location is not her only ties to the city of Baltimore, as several UMB alumni and faculty served on this hospital ship during her 33-year history.
