Surgical Services at CMH
Clinton Memorial Hospital is proud to have this region's premier surgery center. With state-of-the-art equipment and a highly experienced surgery staff (with an average nurse tenure of 24 years), we safely and efficiently provide advanced surgical care.
In addition to our inpatient and outpatient operating areas, our surgery center has pre-anesthesia testing (PAT), a post-anesthesia care unit (PACU), sterile processing and 10 private rooms for recovery for our same-day surgery patients. Our operating rooms are used for a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient procedures, including general, orthopedic, urologic, infertility, vascular, obstetric, gynecologic, ophthalmologic, podiatric and pediatric surgeries. This means we can manage simple procedures such as tonsillectomies and arthroscopies as well as more involved procedures such as laparascopic cholecystectomies and cataract surgeries.
