Lakewood is taking a proactive approach in the care of our patients and working to reduce the risks surrounding coronavirus. While we DO NOT have a positive case of coronavirus, we are looking ahead and working in the best interest of our patients.
Starting Monday, March 16th, providers and nurses will be contacting patients with scheduled clinic appointments to discuss their care and determine if their visit can be rescheduled.
Starting Wednesday, March 18th, we will no longer be scheduling elective surgeries. Emergency surgeries WILL continue to be performed as needed. Lakewood surgery team members will be calling patients with scheduled surgeries on Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th to discuss their procedures and the possibility of rescheduling.
If they’d rather, patients are always welcome to call and reschedule their appointments themselves. If you would like to reschedule, please call 218-894-1515.
While our top priority is patient health and safety, we do recognize this is an inconvenience. This is one step Lakewood is taking to help address the potential threat of coronavirus in our community and surrounding area. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation while we work through this unpredictable time!
