Here are the Finger Lakes and Central New York hospitals mandated to limit elective surgeries effective this week

The state has released the full list of hospitals that will have to begin limiting elective procedures this week due to capacity or staffing issues.

While Governor Kathy Hochul promised more staff to address the workforce shortage, many hospitals will not see elective procedures resume until COVID hospitalizations decline.


Among the hospitals in the Finger Lakes and Central New York that will have to begin limiting procedures are:

– F.F. Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua
– Geneva General Hospital in Geneva
– Highland Hospital in Rochester
– Oneida Health Hospital in Madison County
– Oswego Hospital in Oswego
– Rochester General Hospital in Rochester
– Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester
– Unity Hospital in Rochester
– University Hospital in Syracuse
– Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse
– Wyoming County Community Hospital


Other hospitals in the region have announced that they will be taking preventive measures, so check with your provider if you have something scheduled in the next 30-45 days.

Hochul said the pause on elective surgeries would last until the staffing issues were resolved or until more beds were available at those facilities.
