At some point in a person's life they will encounter a health problem that requires the need for surgery.
At Republic County Hospital we are able to provide for your scheduled surgical procedures as well as those unexpected emergencies.
With our two operating suites, our pre/post anesthesia care unit, and our 24-hour on call specially trained staff, we will provide for your surgical needs.
RCH is proud to have a General Surgeon on staff. Dr. Terah Isaacson, along with Dr. Nolan Beavers, Dr. Kurtis Klecan, and Dr. Joshua Chapman, nurses, anesthetists, and other surgical staff, are able to perform procedures on a regular basis.
Whether you are having an outpatient procedure or one that requires admission to the hospital for an inpatient stay, our surgical staff will work with you to meet your healthcare needs.
Our staff meets with each patient before surgery to review their health history and previous surgical experiences. We also provide education to help you know what to expect before and after your surgical procedure and how long your expected stay will be at Republic County Hospital.
