Due to the effects that the recent influx of COVID-19 cases in the community have had on both staff and inpatient bed availability, beginning Monday, January 17, 2022 all elective endoscopies and surgeries will be postponed to a later date.

Elective cases are generally regarded as not necessary to prevent permanent physical impairment, loss of life, loss of limb, loss of vision or life-threatening physiologic deterioration if deferred up to six weeks. Patients who will need to have their procedure or surgery rescheduled will be contacted by hospital staff.
