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 tested for COVID-19 prior to your procedure. Your provider's office will provide more information on this and other requirements 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.
