Hospitals in Iowa’s 2nd Largest City Limiting Procedures

The Crypto Daily - Movers and Shakers - May 5, 2021

St. Luke’s is limiting surgeries that require a hospital stay to 10 per day. “We continue to assess the situation daily as it remains a very fluid situation,” St. Luke’s spokeswoman Sarah Corizzo said in an email.

Both UnityPoint Health-St. Luke’s Hospital and Mercy Medical Center confirmed Friday their facilities are preserving capacity because of high patient counts in recent weeks, The Cedar Falls Gazette reports. Cedar Rapids hospitals had not delayed or postponed elective surgeries and procedures since last fall. Mercy also is temporarily reducing the number of elective procedures that require hospital stays after surgery, officials confirmed.

“It is a day-to-day decision based on census and affects only procedures that do not need to be done within the next four to six weeks,” Mercy spokesman Mark Wehr said in an email. The announcement comes as coronavirus cases, largely driven by the highly contagious delta variant, have surged in the past month across the state. All 99 Iowa counties are currently experiencing high community transmission, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
