Le Bonheur erects tent to handle swine flu : Local News : Memphis Commercial Appeal.
Le Bonheur [Children's Medical Center in Memphis] set up the 2,400-square-foot tent to handle a growing influx of patients stricken with the H1N1 swine flu virus. The local influenza outbreak, part of a global pandemic, has more than doubled the patient load at the hospital's emergency room in recent days -- even though most of the children don't need to see a physician, health officials say.
