Update on surgeries and procedures

If it’s time to replace your hip or knee – or if your scheduled surgery was deferred because of the coronavirus outbreak – know that Lawrence + Memorial and Westerly hospitals are ready to help you get your health back on track.

Reports indicate that many people who know they would benefit from a procedure today are pushing it off, only to wait because of fear. Our medical and surgical staff assures patients that the hospital is safe for you and your loved ones. The staff is meticulous in carrying out infection prevention precautions. Plus, all surgical patients are being housed on a dedicated floor separate from COVID-19 patients.

Our staff is currently contacting patients who had their surgeries deferred. They will work with you to reschedule your surgery appointment and provide you with additional instructions.
