At our three major hospitals within the Community Medical Centers family, we offer a full range of surgical care – from cardiac and orthopedic surgery to neurological and cosmetic surgery. Our teams of highly trained doctors, nurses and medical professionals use the latest in surgical technology to increase the speed of patient recovery and reduce pain.
Our 10 operating rooms accommodate over 12,000 patients a year needing surgery, many of whom get to go straight home after surgery because of the advanced minimally invasive techniques we use.
Our surgical suites are outfitted with the latest generation of high-density technology – allowing surgeons to internally view and make surgical repairs without making large incisions. This means you go home faster, have far less discomfort and much less chance of complications after surgery.
