TITUSVILLE — As the coronavirus continues to resurge in Brevard and the number of COVID positive patients needing hospitalization and visiting the emergency room, it has become necessary at Parrish Medical Center to postpone elective surgeries until further notice. This will allow the hospital to devote its staffing resources to its emergency department, ICU and inpatient care units.

“Our care partners, doctors, nurses, therapists, everyone throughout our healthcare system have worked tirelessly since the onset of this pandemic and continue to do so with a level of dedication and resilience to be commended,” said President/CEO George Mikitarian.

“The only way we will get this virus under control is through more people becoming vaccinated” said Mikitarian.

Current COVID positive cases at Parrish Medical Center is 40, which is double the cases from last week and nearly four time the number of cases from a month ago.
