St. Mary Medical Center resumes elective surgeries


Following the positive impacts of social distancing and the beginning of a decrease in new COVID-19 cases, Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic has begun a phased approach to resuming critical services and elective surgeries.

One of Trinity Health’s hospitals, St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, resumed select services and surgeries on May 27.

Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic hospitals are implementing COVID-Free Zones, which are areas where we provide care only for people not known to have COVID-19 or COVID symptoms. Other enhanced safety measures include temperature and COVID-19 symptom screenings, continued visitor restrictions and masks provided for physicians, non-clinical staff and anyone who enters Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic facilities.

Additionally, all hospital patients will be tested for COVID-19 prior to a procedure or surgery. If a patient tests positive, the provider will determine if the procedure will be postponed or continue depending on the clinical urgency. If there is a negative test result, the procedure will continue as planned in the COVID-free zone.
