Resumption of Elective/Non-Emergent Procedures

Glens Falls Hospital announced today that it will begin restarting elective/non-emergent procedures beginning February 22, 2021.

“Glens Falls Hospital staff will be reaching out to our patients to confirm rescheduled dates for their surgeries and procedures,” said the hospital’s Chief Operating Officer Paul Scimeca.  “We’ll continue to increase capacity as quickly as possible in order to care for those patients waiting for a surgical procedure.”

The hospital curtailed non-emergent procedures voluntarily in late December as the number of hospitalized COVID patients increased at GFH and throughout the region.  This was to redeploy staff to medical/surgical units to care for the increased number of inpatients.
