Many of our specialties and subspecialties of surgical care have received recognition from several healthcare organizations. Most recently, Healthgrades has recognized us as one of America's 100 Best Hospitals for Gastrointestinal Surgery in 2024. We are also recognized with the 2024 Patient Safety Excellence Award.

Our surgical teams perform a range of inpatient, outpatient and emergency surgeries. Our Outpatient Surgery Center, which is located caddy corner to the hospital, is dedicated exclusively for same-day procedures and provides the same level of care you can expect from our hospital.

We offer access to surgical teams within a variety of specialties, including:

Heart and vascular surgery

From open heart to minimally invasive procedures, we provide a full spectrum of heart and vascular surgery. As an accredited Chest Pain Center with Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), our services include interventional procedures such as angioplasty, coronary artery bypass surgery, endovascular aneurysm repair and stent placement.

Minimally invasive surgery

With the latest surgical technology at our surgeons' hands, we offer minimally invasive surgery whenever possible, including laparoscopic and robotic-assisted options. These techniques may lead to less pain, smaller scars and faster recovery when compared to traditional surgery.

Pediatric surgery

We meet the needs of our youngest patients with comprehensive and compassionate surgical services at our Children's Medical Center. Our specialists and subspecialists offer a wide variety of pediatric surgical procedures, including pediatric orthopedic surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, and pediatric trauma treatment.

Weight loss surgery

We are proud to offer a variety of weight loss surgery options through Redefine Clinical Weight Loss, our premier bariatric weight loss program nationally accredited by the American College of Surgeons as a Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). Our procedures include roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, lap band surgery and sleeve gastrectomy surgery.
