Elective surgeries return to more New York facilities 

Elective surgeries are returning in Rochester, N.Y., almost a month after such procedures were allowed to resume in some areas of the state, Spectrum Local News reported Feb. 22.

Surgery Center at Sawgrass and University of Rochester Medical Center each said they resumed elective surgical procedures last week. 

The surgery center has returned to full strength with a normal operating schedule. 

URMC said Feb. 22 that it was treating 116 COVID-19 positive patients, with 39 of them in the ICU. 

Surgery Center at Sawgrass is owned and operated by the University of Rochester Medical Center. The center performs orthopedics, ENT, gastroenterology, vascular and general surgeries.
