Hendrick Health confirmed changes involving surgical procedures taking place in Brownwood as of March 5.
In a statement from Brett Emmett, Chief Operating Officer, Hendrick Medical Center Brownwood:
Hendrick Health will suspend scheduling surgical cases at Hendrick Surgery Center Brownwood as we evaluate the future for the center. All Hendrick surgical cases after March 5, 2021, will be scheduled and performed at Hendrick Medical Center Brownwood (HMC Brownwood). By transitioning surgical cases to HMC Brownwood, this will allow Hendrick Health to reallocate resources to maintain a strong healthcare community.
Hendrick Health has positions currently available for Hendrick Surgery Center staff within the system. Hendrick Health will make its best effort to maintain these qualified employees.
All procedures performed at Hendrick Surgery Center Brownwood will be offered at HMC Brownwood.
The Hendrick Surgery Center opened in Brownwood in 2017.
