Huntington Hospital Resumes All Elective Surgeries and Limited In-Person Visitation
Feb 25 2021

As with the trend throughout Los Angeles County, Huntington Hospital has seen a decline in hospitalized COVID-19 patients. With this, the hospital is now able to resume all elective surgeries and limited in-person visitation.

Elective Surgeries – We are here to safely care for you

Huntington Hospital provided life-saving and immediate care for the community during the intense winter patient surge and is now resuming all elective surgeries. It is essential that our community not delay needed care to ensure health and well-being. The hospital is currently open for all inpatient and outpatient care services and remains safe for patient care.

“The past three months have been, undoubtedly, the most challenging for our caregivers and the community since the onset of COVID-19,” said Lori J. Morgan, MD, MBA, president and CEO, Huntington Hospital. “While the pandemic is clearly not over at this time, delaying needed care is a detriment to your health and well-being. I encourage our community to schedule any procedures and appointments they’ve been delaying because of the COVID surge. And, as always, dial 9-1-1 or come straight to the emergency room if you or a loved one is experiencing a medical emergency. No matter the need, Huntington is here to provide safe, excellent care to our community.”

Huntington Hospital continues to maintain strict infection prevention measures within the facility. To learn more about what the hospital is doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, please click here.

Updates to Visitor Policy

Huntington Hospital updated visitor guidelines to safely provide our patients the support of their loved ones during their time in the hospital or for when they are visiting us for a procedure.

The Pandemic is Not Over

As a reminder, the COVID-19 virus is still active in the community and the strains circulating in our area can be especially virulent. We mustn’t let our guard down. Please do you part to help continue the positive trends we are finally experiencing: wear a mask, continue to physical distance, gather within health guidelines, and, when it is your turn, please make every effort to get vaccinated.
