Perioperative Services is designed so that our patients can be prepared for and undergo a surgical or endoscopic procedure, enter the recovery phase, and receive post-operative nursing care in a warm and caring environment. If the patient requires a hospital stay after surgery, he/she will be transported to a patient room and receive exceptional inpatient nursing care. Patients undergoing a same-day procedure will receive post-operative nursing care in anticipation that they will be discharged home the same day. Patients also can take comfort that the professional staff in Perioperative Services will extend the same care to waiting family members or friends, providing them with refreshments and warm blankets if they desire.
Our staff comprises dedicated, long-term employees of Jennie Stuart Medical Center, exceeding 600 years of experience combined. We strive to make your visit as pleasant and comfortable as possible, providing pre-operative and post-operative education and support.
The chairman of the Department of Surgery for 2014-2015 is
board-certified surgeon Gerame Wells, MD, FACS.
