Some of that could be containerized, however things like imaging/lab, while able to be containerized, would require space for operations...as well as skilled staff. Hangar decks can be converted to CCP's and the like depending on their size - I was on a SUBSAR ex where we were in the hangar of a Tribal with our 6 person portable recompression chamber set up, as well as our triage/treatment areas. Again, like you said, issues regarding power, storage and square footage come into play when you start needing things for resuscitation/damage control surgery and treatment/recovery, as well as imagery and other things we usually are used to having around.I wasn't even thinking personnel, but that would be significant. Every time you set something like this up it needs specialized staffing - from somewhere; and the bigger the setup the bigger the demands.
I was more thinking of the facilities. Square footage may be great, but you need things like power, ventilation, oxygen, suction and all the stuff that needs to happen outside of the surgical suite or treatment space to enable them. Maybe that can be all containerized now. I don't know.
