Statement on Guidelines for Resuming Elective Outpatient Treatments

Apr. 21, 2020

UR Medicine welcomes the Governor's guidelines that will allow hospitals to resume elective outpatient treatments. We believe Monroe County hospitals can provide safe access for more non-COVID-19 patients who need care – while preserving ample surge capacity should the number of COVID-19 patients rise. We are working closely with the New York State Department of Health, Monroe County and Rochester Regional Health to develop a plan that we believe will allow us to confidently anticipate and manage a COVID surge while maintaining essential care across the community.
