CHANGES TO HOURS OF OPERATION:
CHANGES TO APPOINTMENTS:
As of March 20, Surgical Clinics will reduce capacity to evaluate patients with emergent and urgent issues, post-operative appointments, and conditions in moderate to severe stages where a delay would contribute to a degradation of condition. Priority for surgery will be for emergency or urgent surgery or in cases where delaying surgery longer than 30-60 days could contribute to a deterioration in health or a delay in diagnosis and treatment.
Definitions: Emergent: (needs to start within 1 hour of scheduling the surgery) Urgent: (needs to start within 6 hours of scheduling the surgery)
CHANGES TO SERVICE CAPABILITIES:
Will attempt to conduct virtual health appointments where appropriate and when technology allows. For cancelled appointments and surgeries, patients will be notified by phone or email.
