Bluewater Health is preparing to resume some routine surgeries, the hospital said today.

Patients in the coming days will be notified of opportunities to reschedule their surgeries and other appointments.

Non-urgent surgeries were paused when Ontario’s health system was strained by another surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations in December.

The surge has now slowed and capacity pressures have improved, the hospital said.

Those who are waiting for surgery will hear directly from their physician or surgeon’s office.

Current COVID-19 policies, including visitor restrictions, remain in place.
