As the positive impacts of social distancing, masking and vaccination continues to flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases in Michigan, CMU Health Department of Surgery, along with our hospital partners at Ascension St. Mary’s and Covenant HealthCare, are still performing both elective and urgent surgeries.
We are closely following the most current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and are exercising extreme caution to safely care for our patients and protect our providers. Some precautionary measures we have in place include the use of personal protective equipment, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of operating and recovery rooms, and prescreening of patients scheduled for surgeries.
Based on the results of the prescreening, hospitals may require some patients to be tested for COVID-19 prior to surgery, and some facilities may require all patients to take a test, which will be arranged by the hospital. If you have any questions, please call our Surgery office at 989-790-1001 or our Obstetrics and Gynecology office at 989-746-7789.
