Clinic and Surgery Update

April 20, 2020

Children’s continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, including all public health recommendations, while being mindful of the need to slowly bring our services back on line. Through the end of April, we plan to work with our physicians to address the surgery cases and clinic visits that were postponed from March and early April. We ask that you continue to work with us during this period as you have been. Until at least May 1, please limit new outpatient referrals to only those that are truly urgent and emergent procedures. If you have a patient that you are concerned about, please do not hesitate to contact the pediatric subspecialist to discuss. We will continue to provide regular updates. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
