Healthcare Facility Support

The designed retrofit plans add ventilation, electrical outlets, and transparent doors with room for the patient and space for medical equipment such as ventilators.

Federal Government Purchasing

Federal agencies and other GSA Schedule vendors are reimbursed for their purchase of materials and labor associated with the retrofit [delivery and rental] costs of PODS Isolation Units.

Scalable to Demand

PODS can quickly deploy just a few or hundreds of containers to the authorized retrofit facilities. Once retrofitted, PODS will rapidly deploy them to use inside alternative care facilities thanks to our nationwide network and fleet of more than 220,000 containers.
