HAMILTON - North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC)-Hamilton resumed elective surgeries on Thursday, May 7.
NMMC-Hamilton provides general surgeries, ophthalmology (eyes) and otolaryngology (head and neck).
Gov. Kay Ivey’s Safer at Home order issued on Tuesday, April 28, allows hospitals to resume elective procedures as long as they follow certain health safety precautions. All dental, medical or surgical procedures have been forced to postpone since March 28.
“During this pandemic, I have been concerned about the public deferring much-needed health care because they are fearful of entering a healthcare facility,” said North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS) President and Chief Executive Officer Shane Spees.
