Postponement of Some Elective Surgeries & Procedures

Postponement of Elective Procedures

Beginning on Friday, March 20, 2020, in consultation and agreement with our physicians, we are postponing some elective surgeries and procedures that can be safely delayed without risk to patients until further notice. We are working with our staff to ensure affected patients are notified of postponements.

The American College of Surgeons has recommended this action to all hospitals in response to the growing challenges and concerns over the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its consequent critical effects on our healthcare infrastructure.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, visitors, Associates and community. Our hope is that by postponing some upcoming procedures, we can limit potential exposure for staff and patients, preserve critical resources, such as personal protective equipment, and manage hospital beds that may be needed in the event of a surge of patients.

We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may cause to our patients and their loved ones.
