NYSDOH Guidance on Resumption of Elective Outpatient Surgeries and Non-Urgent Procedures

May 19, 2020 5:18 PM | Anonymous

This Guidance is directed at Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) Office Based Surgery practices (OBS), and Diagnostic and Treatment Centers (DTC) that are located in counties without a significant risk of COVID-19 surge and are deemed eligible to perform Deferred Procedures, (i.e., elective surgeries and non-urgent procedures).

These centers and practices are required to meet the same provisions  required of hospitals in these eligible counties that are also resuming deferred procedures.

Any ASC, OBS, or DTC that fails to comply with this Guidance may be subject to civil penalties.
