Effective immediately, Grays Harbor Community Hospital and Harbor Medical Group are suspending elective and non-emergent surgeries and other changes.
In a release, the hospital group says that the decision to suspend is based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control, American College of Surgeons and Surgeon General’s Office.
Procedures will only be postponed when a 3-month delay would not cause patient harm.
If you have any questions about whether you need an urgent surgery or procedure, you are asked to reach out to the office of your surgeon or primary care provider.
Anyone with a canceled or rescheduled appointment will be notified as soon as possible.
As soon as we have gained control of the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital says that they will begin to reschedule surgeries.
The hospital also stated that they are putting new procedures in place to obtain patient records.
In addition, the hospital is implementing a new procedure for paying your hospital bill in person.
They ask that, if possible, you choose options 1,2, or 3 rather than coming in.
