Arlington-based Texas Health Resources will postpone nonemergency surgeries at its 14 wholly owned hospitals across the state, according to The Dallas Morning News

The suspension will begin Jan. 7  "until further notice," according to the report. 

The health system said it must delay the procedures due to an influx in COVID-19 patients.

"This was a significant decision on our part and illustrates how serious the situation is at our hospitals throughout the region," Stephen O'Brien, a Texas Health spokesperson, told the Morning News. "COVID-19 has filled our hospitals with very sick and dying people, and we have taken this step to help deal with this high volume of critically ill patients."
