Surgical Services

Surgeries can be performed at each of the four Penn Highlands Healthcare hospitals and our two surgery centers.

Our highly-trained staff – surgical techs, nurses, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and anesthesiologists – directly supports the work of the surgeons. At every location, staff is dedicated and knowledgeable to the work done in the operating room. They follow every protocol to make sure your operation is done safely and in harmony for the best outcome.

Even before you arrive for your operation, you will be evaluated specifically for the procedure you will undergo in a pre-surgery clinic. Nurses and a provider will review your health history and your current health conditions.

When you arrive, the staff in our Short Stay Units or at the surgery centers will also assess you, again.

Throughout your surgery, family members and friends may be updated while they wait comfortably in specific waiting areas.

And when it is all over, another group of dedicated staff will care for you until you can go home, again.
