Ochiltree General Hospital has announced they are offering surgical procedures again for the first time since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Texas Panhandle.

Though surgeries – including procedures such as colonoscopies – began being performed once again on May 25, OGH officials said they remain very aware of the threat to the community presented by COVID-19 and have instituted policies to protect patients and staff members.

Beginning Monday, May 18, all patients having procedures at OGH began being pre-operatively tested for COVID-19. This includes all cesarean sections, labor inductions, and patients arriving in active labor.

Operative cases resumed Monday, May 25, and all patients will be tested in-house prior to their procedure.
