Limited elective procedures and services available continues to grow at Veterans Memorial Hospital

Veterans Memorial Hospital continues to reopen outpatient services such as elective colonoscopies, mammograms, physical, occupational, speech and cardiac rehabilitation, respiratory therapy, laboratory testing, massage therapy, immunization and now sleep studies are once again being offered. Each and every patient and visitor who enters the hospital is screened with a temperature scan and is asked a short series of health questions that are COVID-19 related. Each staff member also screens their temperature before entering the hospital, all in an effort to continue to stop the spread of this respiratory illness. Individuals who are interested in inquiring about these procedures or services 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. Again, the hospital stresses that anyone coming into the hospital wear a face mask. Also anyone not feeling well is asked to call the hospital to reschedule their elective procedure. For more information, contact Veterans Memorial Hospital at 563-568-3411.
