Our campus houses 38 operating rooms and eight gastroenterology (GI) suites supporting a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures. Skilled professionals, combined with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, are the basis for the quality care provided in our patient/family centered envirnoment. In addition to the general surgery, plastic surgery, robotic surgery and gastroenterology surgical services both hospitals provide, each facility has unique surgical centers of excellence.
In addition to our hospital based surgical services, our specialists perform surgeries at our free standing surgery center across from St. Joseph's Hospital. We offer two surgical suites to provide the following services:
Many surgeries once requiring a hospital stay are now offered at both hospitals in Outpatient Surgery, which has expanded in recent years to focus on the growing outpatient needs. The convenience of same day surgery, as well as the reduced expense and fewer missed workdays, are tremendous advantages.
Advanced surgical techniques such as robotic and minimally invasive surgeries have enhanced patient experiences and both are available at St. Joseph’s/Candler. Patients are able to be discharged from the hospital within 24 to 48 hours and are back on their feet faster with fewer scars.
Rooted in God’s love we strive to provide a patient-family centered environment where patients and families are reunited as quickly as possible following surgery. The patient and family are actively involved as much as possible in the decision making process with their surgical care team. Families are able to track the progress of the patient with a tracking system “Big Board” located in all surgical waiting rooms, pagers, and staff communication.
