Gifford Health Care has resumed all outpatient surgical procedures at its medical center in Randolph, as well as opened its regional primary and specialty care clinics. Laboratory work and imaging are also available.

“Our committed providers and staff follow all best practices, including personal protective equipment (PPE) protocols, to keep everyone healthy and safe,” Gifford Vice President of Operations Rebecca O’Berry said in a press release Tuesday.

The medical center is testing everyone who comes in for surgery for Covid-19, provides masks for those that do not have one, and have spaced apart seating in waiting areas, among other safety measures.

 O’Berry said people with chronic conditions are especially encouraged to keep their appointments. For more information, including Gifford’s services and clinic locations, visit giffordhealthcare.org.
