Memorial Hospital in Carthage to Resume Elective Surgeries, May 11

Beginning May 11, Memorial Hospital in Carthage, Ill., will resume performing elective surgeries. The hospital was required, along with all other hospitals in the state, to defer non-emergency surgical procedures on April 3 to save on the use of personal protective equipment and to preserve hospital bed availability in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Illinois Department of Public Health has lifted those restrictions.

“We encourage anyone who has deferred an elective surgical procedure due to COVID-19 to reach out to their provider and get scheduled,” said Dina Schaller, Director of Surgery at Memorial Hospital.
