Close to 28 hundred surgeries at IH


Close to 28 hundred surgeries have been completed in Interior Health since mid May.  

In a press release, Interior Health says over 73 hundred phone calls were made to patients on the wait list to see if they wished to proceed with their surgery.

In the next 17 to 24 months, the hope is to complete the surgeries that were postponed due to COVID-19.

Sixteen facilities including one private one are delivering scheduled surgeries in addition to emergency and urgent procedures.
