*NEW* Visitor restrictions announced

Starting at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 19, visitors will no longer be allowed at Santa Cruz Valley Regional Hospital for the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak.

“We realize this will be a difficult time, but these steps are necessary to protect our patients, healthcare workers, staff and the community at large,” said Hospital CEO Kelly Adams. “We are responding in real-time to the most recent information and guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Arizona Department of Health Services.”

These restrictions will be in place until further notice.

Hospital To Temporarily Halt Elective Surgeries

 To free up medical resources to help patients infected with the coronavirus (COVID-19), Santa Cruz Valley Regional Hospital and all other hospitals in Arizona are suspending all elective surgeries.

“We need to make sure our focus is on identifying, isolating and treating COVID-19 patients,” said Hospital CEO Kelly Adams.

The decision came after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order calling for the delay in “non-essential or elective surgeries.” The recommendations come from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are designed to conserve key medical supplies and staff and restrict the spread of the virus.

Elective surgeries deemed not medically necessary are those that can be delayed without undue risk to the patient and can include joint replacements and cosmetic surgery among others. 

These restrictions will be in place until further notice.

“I want to thank our community members for their understanding of this state-wide policy and other adjustments dealing with hospital operations and visitors in these unprecedented times,” Adams said.
