surgical care

For most of us, surgery is a last resort. But sometimes surgery is unavoidable and simply the right thing to do. Nearly 15,000 people have surgery at St. Francis facilities each year. Our goal is to provide the highest quality care to our patients and the latest technology and equipment to their surgeons.

This starts with providing a range of technologies to help your physician properly diagnose your condition. It continues with making sure our surgical facilities are designed and equipped to accommodate complex, multi-dimensional procedures as well as the most commonly performed surgeries. Throughout, our caring, highly trained staff focuses on three things: supporting surgeons during surgery, supporting families during the sometimes long wait, and supporting patients both before and after their operations.
