Elective Surgeries Suspended in Cedar Rapids

Outpatient Plastic Surgery in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

With the continuing spread of COVID-19 within the U.S., Mercy Medical Center, Mercy Physicians, UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Hospital, Surgery Center Cedar Rapids and Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa are working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health authorities, to care for affected individuals while taking steps to limit person-to-person spread within our communities.  

At this time, we have collectively decided to temporarily postpone, non-life threatening, non-urgent surgeries and procedures. This step will impact elective surgeries and procedures at the Cedar Rapids hospitals and Surgery Center. Care teams at each entity will begin the process of reaching out to affected patients to reschedule. This is a rapidly evolving situation and we will reassess on an ongoing basis.

The health and safety of our patients and staff is always our top priority. We believe taking this step now, is the best interest of all and will help us protect our valuable resources, which is our healthcare workers, providers and will also preserve supplies during this challenging period.
