Surgery and appointment information – Learn more

For the safety of our patients and caregivers, we have expanded and changed how we deliver care to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Depending on your medical needs, your appointments could take place in-person, by phone or by video. There may be times when an appointment or procedure may be rescheduled. In which case, we will contact you to let you know. Rest assured, all urgent needs will be addressed promptly.

Existing ChristianaCare patients can request an appointment using their patient portal account.

Visitor restrictions are still in place for your protection. Please refer to our visitor policy for more details.

Our operating rooms are now accommodating elective procedures.

As an added safety measure, all patients will be screened for COVID-19. If needed, your doctor will order a COVID-19 test to be performed at a ChristianaCare laboratory three to five days before your procedure.
