Hospital will open in phases, serving both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients
Beaumont Hospital, Wayne will reopen Tuesday, May 5 at 8:00 a.m. to serve both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients. The campus will reopen in phases as the health system brings staff back.
“We are thrilled to begin re-opening the Wayne campus in phases as we carefully prepare for another potential COVID-19 surge. We have always said that we remain committed to the Wayne community and we are eager to begin providing care at our campus again,” Beaumont Health Chief Operating Officer Carolyn Wilson said.
Phase I services and staff included in these services:
- The Emergency Center
- Note: Beaumont, Wayne’s Level III Trauma Center will not be open; Beaumont is working to reopen trauma services in a later phase
- Obstetrical services that were offered pre-COVID-19
- Observation/Inpatient medical surgical beds and support services (pharmacy, laboratory, food services and environmental services)
In addition, some outpatient surgical and diagnostic services, including the infusion center, will be offered, in compliance with Executive Orders, to meet the time sensitive needs of patients.
Phase II will add more inpatient and critical care capacity as Beaumont carefully reconfigures critical staffing and resource needs across the organization as COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 volumes change. Until Phase II occurs, patients at Wayne, who upon clinical assessment might a need higher level of care, including critical care, will be transferred to another Beaumont facility.
Many factors that could affect health care are beyond Beaumont’s control, such as government orders and the public’s willingness to observe social distancing protocols. Therefore, all plans are subject to change.
As additional services come online and are approved by regulators, Beaumont will notify the community.
