FAYETTEVILLE – March 23, 2020 – Following the guidelines of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the American College of Surgeons, Cape Fear Valley Health is rescheduling non-essential surgeries and procedures effective Tuesday, March 24. Urgent, emergent and essential services will continue uninterrupted.
Rescheduling non-essential surgeries, procedures and diagnostic testing will minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 among patients and healthcare providers. It also allows the healthcare system to conserve critical resources and focus care on those who need it most.
Cape Fear Valley has already begun notifying affected patients and will be contacting the remainder in the coming days. The health system will prioritize these surgeries, procedures and diagnostic testing when it is safe to resume them.Share:
