Surgeries to ramp back up at Dauphin Regional Health Centre soon


Hospitals across the province, including Dauphin Regional Health Centre, will carefully begin increasing surgical capacity this week, providing additional access for patients whose procedures have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Patient safety and avoiding negative outcomes for patients whose procedures have been delayed by COVID-19 are top priorities for our government,” Health and Seniors Care Minister Heather Stefanson said.
“With COVID-related hospitalization numbers stabilizing, we are acting on the advice of our clinical experts to take this opportunity to provide access for patients whose conditions have become more urgent during the surgical slowdown caused by the pandemic.”
