About Us:

Our unit specializes in providing individualized care to adult patients from over a dozen different surgical specialty services, including patients who have undergone transplants, thyroidectomies, plastic surgeries, and tracheostomies.  We help prepare patients for surgery and continue that care throughout their second or third postoperative day when they are discharged.

Our patient focus is to educate patients about caring for themselves beyond their hospital stay.  Each patient has unique physical, social, and educational needs.  Our nurses utilize numerous resources to ensure each patient receives the appropriate education for living on their own.

A typical shift for our nurses includes an average of 10 admissions and discharges a day while working in close collaboration with our physicians and nurse practitioners to provide excellent care to our patients and to keep us operating at the highest standards.

The General Surgery unit offers a variety of educational opportunities to both new and experienced nurses to enhance their skill base.
