Memorial Sports Medicine Center
Memorial Healthcare System and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital are committed to placing the safety and well-being of our patients, staff, and physicians first. Due to that commitment and the recent surge in COVID-19 positive cases, Memorial is postponing all elective, non-urgent and non-emergency surgeries/procedures effective Wednesday, July 8, 2020 until further notice. Although our offices will be contacting those who already have a surgery/procedure scheduled, we encourage you to contact your physician’s office to discuss next steps.
Starting Monday, July 13, all MPG adult specialties will continue to offer telehealth and telephone appointments. In-person visits are on a case by case basis until further notice.
We appreciate your patience during this time of uncertainty. One thing that is certain is Memorial’s commitment to keeping its community safe and healthy.
