CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Clinic announced Tuesday that it will be resuming nonessential surgeries next week due to a “plateau of daily admissions of patients with COVID-19.”

According to the hospital system, nonessential surgeries that require an overnight hospital stay will resume on Jan. 4, 2021. The Cleveland Clinic said it is also resuming surgical care at the Marymount Ambulatory Surgery Center.

“We will continue to monitor our scheduled surgical cases based on hospital bed capacity and caregiver support as we begin 2021. We are still caring for a significant number of patients with COVID-19; however, we currently have the ability and capacity to serve all of our patients while safely resuming our surgical services,” the Cleveland Clinic stated.
