Memorial cancels elective, non-urgent surgeriesMarch 17, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center will cancel and/or postpone elective and non-urgent surgical procedures, effective Wednesday.
A news release from the hospital says this move will help conserve resources and is in compliance with directives from Gov. Eric Holcomb.
This will include both inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures at Memorial Hospital and the Memorial Outpatient Surgery Center.
“Elective” simply means a procedure is scheduled rather than a response to an emergency or urgent need.
Patients with surgeries scheduled are urged to contact their physician office for further information.
According to the hospital, these measures are being taken in an effort to protect patients, families, and hospital staff.
