The operator of a hospital in Seaford is moving out of crisis mode as it modifies visitation and resumes elective surgeries that require an overnight hospital stay.

TidaHealth Friday announce the move from Crisis to Contingency at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional in Salisbury and TidalHealth Nanticoke effective Friday, Feb. 4.

“Although trending positively on volumes, staffing, and Covid-19 admissions, we remain very busy at both hospitals but we are starting to stabilize after what has been the busiest period in the history of our health system. We have reopened modified visitation and we’re gradually returning to surgeries requiring overnight stays,” the release stated.

The release continued, “TidalHealth thanks our healthcare team and our communities for their exceptional dedication, determination, patience, and understanding. We ask that you stay vigilant, practice good hand hygiene, social distancing, and masking, get vaccinated and get your booster shot when you qualify.”

Hospitalizations have dropped sharply in Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland, although the number of Covid-19 patients remains high.
