• Ohio’s Zone 2 Postpones Non-Essential Surgeries

    Columbus, Ohio: In the last few weeks, we have seen an unprecedented surge of new COVID-19 cases in Central, Southeast, and Southeast Central Ohio due to the more contagious Omicron variant.

    The resulting increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations has stretched our hospital resources to the maximum.

    Because of this, all of our adult hospitals in Zone 2 have mutually agreed to postpone non-essential surgical procedures requiring an overnight stay through January 21, 2022. Essential surgeries to prevent death, prevent permanent limb or organ injury, to prevent the progression of cancer and to prevent the progression to severe pain will continue as normally scheduled.
