Sturgis Hospital announced it will work with patients during as well as after the state of emergency to ensure those who need care for non-COVID-19 procedures receive it.
Officials urge people not to delay emergency care out of fear of contracting COVID-19.
Sturgis Hospital has improved supplies of personal-protective equipment and staff availability, and will begin to resume other important services and procedures, officials said.
Hospital clinicians are able to make medically based decisions to perform certain non-emergency services if that service is necessary to preserve the health and well-being of their patient, according to Bobby Morin, chief operating officer at Sturgis Hospital.
Sturgis Hospital has adopted several infection-control protocols to help ensure all areas of the hospital are safe for patients and staff. All visitors must wear a face covering and everyone who enters the hospital will be screened.
Also, restrictions for visitors will remain in place.
