Elective Surgery Policy – Pennsylvania Campuses

Our hospitals are safe, and we are ready for you. St. Lukeʼs Infectious Disease experts have determined that elective surgeries and associated diagnostic and imaging studies may proceed with certain safeguards. (Note this change does not apply to St. Lukeʼs Warren Campus, which is on a separate, New Jersey timetable.)

Some important things to know:

  1. We have not experienced a surge of COVID patients like what was seen in NYC / NJ
  2. The nurses and staff taking care of you will not be taking care of COVID patients at the same time
  3. All staff will be masked at all times in the hospital for your protection
  4. All patients undergoing surgery will be COVID tested, pre-procedure, helping to ensure a COVID free environment

Our priority is and will always be the safety of our patients.
