Elective surgeries, physical therapy to resume at PRMC soon

Rapid Testing At Prmc

SALISBURY, Md. – Peninsula Regional Medical Center is working to reopen some services that were temporarily affected by COVID-19.

Elective surgeries are starting to be scheduled in limited numbers this week, and on a larger scale beginning Monday, May 18th. Patients should check with their surgeon to find out when their surgery can be scheduled.

Outpatient Physical Medicine Services will resume at PRMC and McCready effective Monday, May 18th.

Pulmonary function testing and electroencephalogram (EEG) will resume for outpatient diagnostic testing on Monday, May 18th. Electromyography has already resumed. Visitors are not allowed at these appointments.

In addition, screening colonoscopies and other procedures will resume at the end of the week at the Delmarva Endoscopy Center at the Ocean Pines Health Pavilion. Screening mammography resumes at the Peninsula Breast Center today, May 13th.

At this time, the medical center’s No Visitor policy remains in effect. A support person may accompany Labor and Delivery patients as well as those with special needs or disabilities. Patients undergoing surgery may have one support person before the procedure, but that person will be asked to wait in their vehicle or elsewhere while the patient is undergoing the procedure. Peninsula Regional and all its affiliates will observe social distancing measures to minimize contact.

All employees will continue to be screened upon arrival to work, and all patients and support persons will be screened for COVID-19 on arrival.
