Surgical Update for Patients

April 21, 2017

At Watertown Regional Medical Center (WRMC), the safety of our patients – you – is one of our top priorities and something that we take very seriously.

As some of you may have heard, we recently discovered a mechanical issue in our facility that required immediate attention. Because your safety is so important to us, we decided to postpone certain surgical procedures until we are certain that the issue has been fully resolved.

We are currently working with a team of specialists, engineers and contractors who have great expertise in this area to resolve the issue and hope to resume surgeries very soon. In the meantime, patients whose surgeries may be impacted by this issue are being personally notified by our team.

We understand how much planning and preparation goes into having surgery, and we regret any inconvenience that this may cause. 

Thank you for understanding and for choosing WRMC as your healthcare provider. It is our privilege to serve as your healthcare partner.
