TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Two weeks after heavily reducing its surgery schedule, The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus is beginning a gradual return to its normal schedule.

On January 5th, the hospital cut down to performing only urgent and time-sensitive surgeries, allowing its Post Anesthesia Care Unit to be used as an overflow for the surge of inpatients caused by recent COVID-19 spikes.

St. Francis is bringing back non-urgent out-patient surgeries this week and will look to continue adding back more surgical services moving forward.
