What’s new?

Ramping up begins
GGH has been approved to move forward with our plan to gradually increase our surgical and procedural services. This week, you will start to see an increase in patients within the organization as we start to increase elective surgeries, diagnostic testing and other procedures.

During the past few months, GGH was required to only continue with urgent and emergency cases. Therefore, we have a significant back log in patients waiting.  This is our first week of increasing services and we are going very slowly. During the week, the teams in Ambulatory Care, Diagnostic Imaging and the OR have been working very hard to plan for patient flow, physical distancing and timing of services. Our goal continues to be the safety of our patients and our staff. Each week, we will be re-evaluating how the previous week went and assessing our ability to move ahead with more procedures.
