ORMC surgeries to resume today

TOWN OF WALLKILL – Surgeries are to resume on Monday, today, after a weekend of sterilizations and investigation into the cause of a mechanical sterilization issue at Orange Regional Medical Center.

Since Friday, surgeries have been cancelled at the Town of Wallkill hospital.

“We are making headway in determining the cause of the sterilizer issue,” ORMC spokesman Rob Lee said Sunday. “Simultaneously, the Central Sterilization team along with surgery staff are doing a tremendous job preparing trays for Monday’s surgeries.”

Patients have been contacted regarding the resumed schedule for today and when they are to report as per normal procedure.

The hospital remains prepared to perform emergency surgery on already admitted inpatients,” Lee said, but the hospital remains in a “divert” status.
