FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: All Elective Surgeries Canceled

Due to the presence of COVID-19 in multiple counties in our state, Meeker Memorial Hospital is now canceling the vast majority of elective patient procedures/surgeries in anticipation of a greater strain on staffing, space, equipment and other resources. This decision also follows the current recommendations of the American College of Surgeons, United States Surgeon General and Minnesota Hospital Association.

This decision is effective immediately and will remain in effect for 90 days.

Please know our providers will still be determining, on a case-by-case basis, if a procedure/surgery needs to be done, based on patient acuity.

We are dedicated to the continued care of all patients who are experiencing a broad range of urgent/emergent care needs. The health and safety of each and every patient continues to be a priority.

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging circumstances
