Following a press conference yesterday, Bassett Healthcare Network announced that the healthcare network is resuming elective outpatient surgeries and non-urgent procedures. In addition, the network is undertaking restoration of the full range of health care services previously curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This follows permission by Governor Cuomo allowing non-essential procedures to resume at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown, A.O. Fox Hospital in Oneonta, Little Falls Hospital, O’Connor Hospital in Delhi, and Cobleskill Regional Hospital. Bassett health officials say that people should NOT hesitate to seek the care they need because of the coronavirus outbreak.
