Starting Monday, May 18th, Memorial Medical Center will be taking appropriate steps to safely resume clinically appropriate elective and non-urgent surgeries and procedures that were previously rescheduled. The decision to reschedule procedures was made in accordance with federal and state guidance and intended to preserve critical resources in the event of a surge of COVID-19 patients in the community. Doña Ana County has experienced an extremely low prevalence of COVID-19 with less than a dozen people hospitalized at this time. Resuming these important services will be an essential component to meeting our community’s health needs. As this work gradually gets underway in our hospital, we will remain committed to preserving a safe, quality environment for all patients, providers, and employees.
