National Hospital Week is May 10-16: VMH again offering elective procedures and mammograms

National Hospital Week is May 10-16, 2020. Veterans Memorial Hospital will soon be entering its 70th year after opening its doors October 1, 1950.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital has had to limit surgeries and outpatient procedures, but is now beginning to offer a few elective surgical procedures, such as colonoscopies and mammograms.

Individuals who are interested in inquiring about having one of these preventative procedures should call their provider. The provider can then share the order for the procedure with Veterans Memorial Hospital. Then the appointment and instructions will be shared.

The hospital will be taking the highest precautions with each and every patient, leaving appropriate time between procedures and using all personal protective equipment and protocols.

Anyone coming into the hospital is asked to wear a face mask. Those who are not feeling well should call the hospital to reschedule their elective procedure.

For more information, contact Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411.
