Our goal as a Surgery Department is to help you to navigate through the surgical process and promote a positive surgical experience and quick recovery. We want to make you as comfortable as possible and supply you with clear explanations about what is happening and why.

We’re proud to be part of your community and are committed to the people we serve. At Touchette Regional Hospital, we provide safe and high-quality care close to home. Our nursing staff members have years of experience and work as a team with our physicians and anesthetists to provide you and your family with personal service at every step.
