Five hospital systems in Oklahoma City and Norman have decided to postpone elective, non-urgent surgeries during coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the state.

The hospitals include:

  • Integris,
  • Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City,
  • Norman Regional Health System,
  • OU Medicine (OU Medical Center, OU Medical Center Edmond and The Children's Hospital at OU Medicine) and
  • SSM Health St. Anthony. 

Elective and non-urgent surgeries and procedures are classified as those that can be rescheduled to a future time and will not significantly impact the patient's health. 

The hospitals said they will begin contacting patients as their cases become eligible for potential postponement.
