BEND, OR -- Heart and lung surgeries at St Charles Bend have resumed. The hospital was forced to suspend the program for 12 days because there weren't enough cardothoracic doctors to cover.

 

St Charles officials say four patients needed surgery during the closure and they were sent to Portland area hospitals for care. Other operations were rescheduled or handled by the vascular surgery team in Bend.

 

Administrators say they are taking steps to ensure disruption of surgeries in Bend will not happen again.
