Heritage Valley Cancels Elective Surgeries for Two Weeks

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and in order to protect our community, Heritage Valley Health System will cancel all elective surgeries and procedures, including but not limited to endoscopies and cardiac catheterizations, at our three community hospitals – Heritage Valley Beaver, Heritage Valley Kennedy, and Heritage Valley Sewickley -- from March 18, 2020 through March 31, 2020. Exceptions to this include:

  • Patients that will suffer an adverse event if surgery is not done within this time period
  • Patients with severe symptoms that can only be treated with surgery
  • Patients who will have a delay in a critical diagnosis
