Level 4 Lockdown, 17th August 2021

Written by Janet Keys, General Manager on August 17th, 2021.      0 comments

New Zealand is in Level 4 lockdown, and as advised by the Prime Minister this evening, our region is in lockdown for the next three days.

This means that all surgery and procedures are cancelled at Grace Hospital on Wednesday 18th, Thursday 19th , Friday 20th and Saturday 21st August. When your surgeon’s rooms are re-opened they will be able to arrange a new date for your admission.

Current inpatients will be discharged home as soon as they are able, and we will close the hospital over the weekend and hopefully re-open on Monday 23rd for business as usual.

Restrictions on visitors will be in place over this period, and we will advise these to all inpatients.

If further restrictions are put in place which could affect surgeries next week, we will contact you over the weekend.

Thank you for your co-operation,
Janet Keys, General Manager
