As the number of patients with COVID-19 continues to rise, Novant Health’s coastal region is taking steps to accommodate the increase and support our team in caring for our patients.
As of August 1, 2021, we are taking the following steps to support the needs of our patients and team members through this time:
• The surgical schedule at the NHRMC main campus is frozen for the week of August 1. Only emergent and urgent surgeries can be added.
• The PACU will be used to help support overflow patients.
• More support will be added to the ICUs.
• When possible, we will bring staff to the NHRMC main campus from Atlantic SurgiCenter, the Orthopedic Hospital and Pender Memorial Hospital to help flip and add surgical rooms.
