Grant funds new radiology system

Wyoming County Community Hospital is one of six area non-profits receiving support from the William F. Tiel Trust. The money will help replace the facility’s 27-year-old radiography system.

WARSAW — Elective surgeries are set to resume Monday at the Wyoming County Community Health System.

The decision was made in accordance with state and regional orders along with Department of Health directives, WCCHS officials said in a news release.

“We have taken unprecedented measures to protect the safety of our patients, healthcare workers and community as a whole,” said Dr. Paul Mason, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Chief Medical Officer.

Precautions are still recommended.

“It should be understood that in these uncertain times and as with any surgery, each individual should consider the risks associated with that surgery related to their particular circumstances,” WCCHS officials said. “We believe with the consideration of all sources of guidance, we have minimized the risk, allowing us to return to providing the level of high quality care that the community has enjoyed in the past and expects in the future.”
