Greenwich Hospital says outpatient and elective surgeries will return Wednesday

UPDATED TUESDAY 3:30 PM — Greenwich Hospital said on Tuesday that it was able to get through Hurricane Sandy without damage and that it will have a full return to services by Wednesday.

According to hospital spokesman George Pawlush, there were no power interruptions to the “main campus” at 5 Perryridge Road. However, due to travel conditions the hospital had made the decision to cancel elective surgical procedures and outpatient services for Tuesday. It is expected that all of that will resume by Wednesday.

There was also no damage suffered to some of the hospital’s offsite facilities but there were power losses at sites including diagnostic imaging and physical therapy in Stamford, the Greenwich Fertility Center and Helmsley Ambulatory Surgery Center at 55 Holly Hill Lane; offsite cancer centers at 15 Valley Drive and the Endoscopy Center at 500 West Putnam Street. Mr. Pawlush said it’s unclear when service will be restored.

 

“In the interim, those outpatients will receive services at the main campus,” Mr. Pawlush said.

“I am pleased to report that all is well at the hospital,” Greenwich Hospital President and CEO Frank Corvino said. “I can’t say enough about the admirable performance of our 150 physicians and staff who stayed over on Monday night to ensure the care and safety of the 154 patients who were with us during the hurricane.”

Mr. Corvino added that, in keeping with the hospital’s emergency disaster preparations, “Everything went smoothly and systematically.”
