Photos of the Hospital Room of Donald Trump
Reporter Richard Southern shared photos from inside the hospital’s presidential suite. Southern posted the photos via Twitter on Saturday (October 4).
“U.S president Trump isn’t staying in any old hospital room,” he tweeted. “Walter Reed Hospital has a six-room presidential suite just for the commander in chief that includes an intensive care unit, a kitchen, a living room, a bedroom, & a dining room with a crystal chandelier.”
The photos show just how luxurious and spacious the suite really is. It has all of the amenities of a high class hospital and hotel.
Southern noted that this marks the first presidential hospitalization in 39 years. The last president that was hospitalized was Ronald Reagan. He went there after his assassination attempt on March 30, 1981.

All About the Suite
The hospital has an intensive care unit, a secure conference room. Even White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has his own office. The suite also includes a sizable dining room for high-profile guests. Furthermore, the President has access to an entire floor of nine rooms.
Walter Reed Hospital staff does not have unrestricted access to his quarters. In case of emergency, there are numerous doctors who have been vetted in specific specialties. The president’s physician has his own room to work and sleep in since he is on call 24/7.
On May 1, 1909 the Walter Reed General Hospital opened its doors. The hospital was named after an Army doctor that discovered that yellow fever was transmitted through mosquitos. The presidential facility opened in 2011.
Presidents have been going t the hospital for years. Ronald Reagan had surgery at the hospital. Richard Nixon was treated for pneumonia there. Unfortunately, the autopsy of John F. Kennedy took place there. Additionally, Melania had her kidney surgery performed there in 2018. Overall, Trump has visited the hospital nine times since he first took office.
Trump and COVID-19
Finally, the President tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. He has only experienced mild symptoms so far. His medical team wanted to be cautious so they admitted him to Walter Reed.
Trump thanked the incredible medical professionals at Walter Reed in a statement. “I think it’s the finest in the world, for the incredible job they’re doing,” he admitted.
