US: Cloudbeds, a property management software company, has created #hospitalityhelps to connect property owners and operators with health care professionals to assist with providing beds.

Hospitality owners or managers are able to make their property available for use through the #hospitalityhelps platform here.

Adam Harris, CEO at Cloudbeds, said that the response to the launch has been “overwhelming” with hotels representing thousands of beds signing up within minutes of the launch.

"With each passing hour, we face an ever more acute shortage of available beds for the sick, and for health professionals who are fighting coronavirus. At the same time, we are seeing many lodging providers reducing occupancy or sitting empty altogether. The hotel industry has always been about people first and foremost.  #hospitalityhelps is connecting our hotel customers and industry partners with government and healthcare agencies to help people who need it most - by making more beds available."

Richard Castle, president and COO of Cloudbeds, added: "This is a time when all of us must take action to do what we can to avoid reaching an unprecedented breaking point in our health care system. It doesn't make sense that patients in need of beds should be without them, when there are hundreds of beds available around the corner.”

“We have a team of people working around the clock to help alleviate the strain by mobilising the hospitality community. As communities continue to act urgently to prepare, we hope that leaders in hospitality and other industries will step forward to support them."

Government and healthcare agencies on the front line can contact covid-19@cloudbeds.com for immediate response.
