Elective surgery update

On June 30, 2020, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a proclamation amending his executive order on elective surgeries to include Cameron County as part of his update on the state's ongoing response to COVID-19.

After reviewing the order and the implications to our patients, it is important to know that Valley Regional Medical Center will continue on with elective surgeries through a careful vetting process meeting the requirements under Governor Abbott's executive order.
