Changes to Elective Procedures

As we prioritize the safety of our staff, patients and community, Altru has established safety measures related to procedures. All patients with scheduled (or elective) procedures will be asked to quarantine for 14 days prior to the procedure. Your provider's office will provide these guidelines and work with you to answer any questions or concerns. We will continue to do urgent and emergent surgeries, putting measures in place to ensure our patients and staff are safe.


To allow us to safely screen all patients during this time, we have temporarily paused on self-scheduling in some specialties through MyChart. Please call your provider's office to schedule your appointment, or call Altru's main number at 701.780.5000.
