Surgeries & Procedures
Upon careful review of area hospital utilization and COVID-19 statistics in South Florida, Broward Health is once again taking all necessary measures to ensure the safety of our patients, employee family, and medical staff. Effective, Wednesday, July 15, all elective, non-urgent, and non-emergency procedures will be suspended. Same-day emergent procedures will be reviewed on an individual basis until further notice. Appointments will continue for outpatient imaging, labs, physical therapy and rehabilitative services at our locations.
Patients scheduled for elective surgery on or after July 15, 2020, will be contacted by their provider. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your physician.
Broward Health launched various telemedicine initiatives earlier this month to ensure continuity of care and greater access for the community. Due to innovative technology, patients and community members now have access to:
- BHealthy Now App offering virtual COVID-19 visits.
- 24/7 Nurse Connect service offering telephonic access to nurses.
- Telemedicine technology for inpatient medical visits.
- iPads and virtual platforms to keep hospital patients connected to loved ones.
Broward Health is committed to providing high-quality care to all those we serve. To speak with a registered nurse, call our Nurse Connect line at 954-320-5730. For the latest updates on COVID-19 and Broward Health, visit Browardhealth.org.
