Surgery

St. Joseph Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) has earned a number of honors for its inpatient surgical practices. Our staff takes pride in giving you the best health care available. From preadmission to recovery, our team is there to help you. We want to make your stay pleasant and comfortable.

Our team consists of highly skilled and board-certified surgeons; nurses who provide a gentle, caring touch; and assistants ready to help you. We work closely with doctors' offices and patients to ensure quality care while helping patients prepare for what will happen during surgery and then with recovery.

You will see a preadmission nurse, who will answer any questions you have about the process and treatment. The nurse will ask about your medical and surgical history, do any preoperative tests that are necessary, provide you with information about the admission and discharge processes, and start your record.
