BayCare resumes non-urgent surgeries
August 4, 2020 - BayCare Health System will resume all non-urgent surgeries and procedures at its six acute care hospitals in Hillsborough County, starting Monday, Aug. 10. BayCare’s acute hospitals in Pinellas, Polk and Pasco counties resumed all non-urgent surgeries and procedures on Aug. 3. In early July, the health system voluntarily curtailed inpatient, non-urgent surgeries to provide more hospital bed capacity in the community for Covid-19 patients. BayCare is now able to resume those services after working to increase its staffing resources and seeing a downward trend in Covid-related hospital stays in recent weeks, a news release said.
