(CNN) — Some healthcare workers dealing with the coronavirus are getting free vacations. American Airlines says it is teaming up with Hyatt Hotels to donate trips to workers at New York’s Elmhurst Hospital.
More than 4,000 doctors, nurses and assistants are eligible for the vacations.
They are three-day stays at locations in the U.S. and Caribbean.
American says it chose Elmhurst because staff there are working so hard to save coronavirus patients.
The airline notes that the hospital has increased its intensive care capacity by about 500 percent.
