C.R. hospitals temporarily postpone elective surgeries due to COVID-19 surge


Corridor Business Journal: Mercy Cedar Rapids and UnityPoint Health-St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids jointly announced Thursday that in response to a marked increase in COVID-19 inpatient hospitalizations, all elective, non-urgent surgeries are being temporarily postponed.
