The ThedaCare Health System is now deferring all elective, non-urgent care. ThedaCare made the announcement Thursday afternoon, effective immediately for all seven of its hospitals. Surgery and procedures that can be postponed without undue risk to the patient or the patient’s medical condition will be rescheduled approximately six weeks out. Also, routine lab testing will be re-directed out of the hospital. Care teams are working directly with patients to change appointments as needed. If you have an appointment or procedure such as this scheduled for the near future, you can expect a call from ThedaCare to move that to a future date.
