Surgeries, Procedures, and Exams
MarinHealth Medical Center, as well as all other hospitals in the Bay Area, has been safely performing emergency, lifesaving surgeries during the Shelter-In-Place. While elective surgeries were placed on hold, a joint statement by the American College of Surgeons and many other medical associations has recently published guidelines and a roadmap for resuming elective surgery as a result of COVID-19 pandemic.
