Hospitals Prepare for the G-20

As city, state and federal officials prepare the Pittsburgh area for the G-20 Summit, local hospitals are getting their emergency rooms ready for whatever may come their way.
Thousands of people will be in the region. Historically, Allegheny General Hospital has been the designated White House Hospital, where the president would be treated if he got sick.
There are two other trauma hospitals in the Pittsburgh region. They are UMPC Mercy and Presbyterian.
Hospitals outside the region, such as St. Clair Hospital, are also getting ready.
We visit all of the hospitals.
