In accordance with State and Regional Orders along with Department of Health Directives, Wyoming County Community Health System (WCCHS) plans to resume elective surgeries as of May 4, 2020.
According to Dr. Paul Mason, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Chief Medical Officer, “We have taken unprecedented measures to protect the safety of our patients, healthcare workers and Community as a whole.”
It should be understood that in these uncertain times and as with any surgery, each individual should consider the risks associated with that surgery related to their particular circumstances. We believe with the consideration of all sources of guidance, we have minimized the risk, allowing us to return to providing the level of high quality care that the community has enjoyed in the past and expects in the future.
