Surgical Services: Main Campus

The surgery department at the main campus of Firelands Regional Medical Center provides individualized procedural care to pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients who are in need of skilled surgical intervention. The goal of the surgery department is to provide the most efficient collaborating team possible to achieve optimum results for patients as they prepare for their procedure including anesthesia, surgical intervention and recovery. The goal is to return patients to their former level of functioning in the family and community or help them become stable for transport to a postoperative nursing unit. The plan of care is designed to assist the patient’s progress toward optimum levels of activity for his or her age, physical and psychological limits and surgical intervention process.
