Surgical Suites Guide

In 2009 Memorial celebrated the completion of the largest expansion in its 113-year history. The surgical suite replacement project has increased capacity to 13 major surgery suites, with room for expansion as needed.

Rooms can accommodate all types of surgeries from the most complex to the most common, including: cardiovascular cases, orthopedics, neurosurgery, trauma, and daVinci robotic surgery.

Memorial now operates one of the most technologically advanced surgical centers in the country. Our new facility will help attract additional surgeons to the community. Memorial is currently recruiting pediatric surgeons as part of the Children's Hospital expansion.

Each of our surgical suites provide the following:

  • Infection Control
