Discontinuing Pre-Op Testing for Elective Surgical Cases/Procedures
April 15, 2021
As of March 22, 2021, pre-operative and pre-procedure COVID-19 testing for elective cases will be at the discretion of the ordering physician or surgeon. If you are undergoing an outpatient procedure, your provider may place the order for the test, and if so, the hospital will reach out with instructions for scheduling. If your test happens to be positive, your procedure will be postponed, and you will be given instructions related to your care.
