We also maintain the highest standards of clinical practice to serve people of our community.

The Surgery Department provides a safe and comfortable environment for all patients. Today's surgeons perform a multitude of surgical procedures utilizing the least invasive procedures, minimizing the patient's hospital stay, if any. Many procedures are completed on an out-patient basis, enabling the patient to go home the same day. In order for a patient to receive a surgical procedure at El Campo Memorial Hospital, their primary care physician, family doctor or specialist will refer them to our Surgical Department. The patient will have a consultation with the surgeon. The surgical nurse will follow up with detailed surgical instructions, both pre and post-surgery. Patient may also directly contact the surgeon for a consultation. El Campo Memorial Hospital has a full-time anesthesiologist that works closely with the surgical team.
