Statement on Emory Healthcare resuming elective surgical and procedural services
Woodruff Health Sciences Center | June 11, 2020
Based on the status of COVID-19 within our community, capacity within our hospitals and needed resources in place, Emory Healthcare has resumed elective surgical and procedural services throughout its hospitals and clinics.
Emory has the staff and supplies in place to allow for surgeries, procedures and office visits to be performed as needed. We encourage patients to keep scheduled appointments, and if physicians advise patients to go ahead with care for their condition at any one of our facilities, please know that we are able to deliver that care with extensive safety measures in place. Our staff and physicians undergo symptom screenings and wear masks to support social distancing. As always, we remain committed to monitoring our supply chain and COVID-19 positive admissions to ensure the safety of our patients and care teams.
