The rollout comes as COVID-19 cases continue to spike nationwide.

On Monday, ThedaCare said it will defer non-urgent elective surgeries at all seven of its hospitals, including Appleton.

Care teams are working directly with patients to change appointments as needed. Those patients can expect a phone call from provider teams about changes to appointments and care plans.   

“Our current model predicts COVID-19 cases will continue to rise for the next two to three weeks as the highly transmissible Omicron variant spreads rapidly in Northeast and Central Wisconsin,” said Lynn Detterman, Senior Vice President of the ThedaCare South Region in a news release.
