IU Health temporarily suspending half of elective surgeries in response to COVID-19 surge 


IU Health is temporarily suspending 50 percent of inpatient elective surgeries beginning Aug. 30  in response to a surge in COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations.

Hospital officials stated that “the move is needed to alleviate some of the enormous pressure our care teams are under and to reserve inpatient space for those who need it most.”

IU Health is contacting patients scheduled for elective surgeries and expects surgeries to be rescheduled approximately three weeks out.
