Surgery Department


Surgery is a decision made after careful consideration between doctor and patient. Washington County Hospital can provide a wide array of surgery services to aid in this decision. Our skilled surgeons, anesthesiology and nursing team are committed to providing a safe and comfortable surgical experience at all times. The OR Team at Washington County Hospital has a passion for excellence and compassion for people.

The majority of procedures performed at WCH are outpatient (or same-day) and many are done laparoscopic. All patients undergoing surgery or other invasive procedures are evaluated prior to the procedure by surgical and anesthesia staff who then develop a plan of care. Patients are monitored during and after anesthesia as part of the surgical process. WCH provides pre-operative teaching, post-operative care and pain control that is vital for a quick return to normal activities.

Procedures offered include general, vascular, gynecological, podiatry, ophthalmology and endoscopic surgeries. Surgical procedures are performed by highly qualified and experienced physicians. To inquire about having your surgery performed in a Joint Commission Certified facility, close to home call (618) 327-2225 or (618) 327-2309.
