(WXYZ) — Beaumont Health says they are putting some outpatient services on hold in order to ensure the safety of patients and staff, conserve hospital resources and move staff to areas with the greatest need.

Those services include:

  • physical therapy
  • occupational therapy
  • cardiac rehab
  • pulmonary rehab

Beaumont says only rare exceptions will apply.

The closures are effective immediately and patients will be notified.

Staff will be working with patients to provide home exercises so that they can continue their care plans. Patients with any questions can call their clinic and leave a message and a staff member will return their call.

Beaumont says additional closures will follow as need continue to evolve.
