Surgeries, Procedures, and Exams Have Resumed
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. These guidelines set specific criteria needed to resume elective surgeries and MarinHealth Medical Center has met the strict criteria. We are fully open to schedule surgeries, procedures and exams. Please refer to the following FAQ for more information about surgeries at MarinHealth Medical Center.
