IMPORTANT: Elective Surgery and Specialty Clinic Visits

Beginning Friday, March 20, Cook Children’s will begin canceling and rescheduling surgical/procedural cases that are deemed to be elective through May 1. These decisions will be made by clinicians on a case by case basis in an effort to reduce person-to-person contact. Time sensitive, emergent and urgent cases will still take place. Parents and guardians will be contacted if their child’s appointment/procedure needs to be rescheduled. If you feel your child’s upcoming procedure or appointment can be postponed at least six weeks, please call your physician’s office. This change is being made in accordance with recommendations by the federal government and the American College of Surgeons.

"Cook Children's remains dedicated to the care of our patients and our community during this public health emergency," said Alice Philips, M.D., a member of Cook Children’s Physician Network’s COVID-19 Emergency Preparedness Task Force and a pediatrician in Cityview. “As a health care system, we are taking unprecedented measures to protect our patients, their families, the community, our physicians and staff. We hope people understand any inconvenience this may create and work with us, until this public health crisis is over and we return to a sense of normalcy.”

These changes will be followed for the foreseeable future. As with everything involving COVID-19, this situation is fluid and changing frequently. Please continue to follow Cook Children’s for the latest information.
