Surgery at Southcoast

Surgeons at all three Southcoast hospitals perform some of today's most advanced surgical procedures — from open heart surgery to neurosurgery to minimally invasive procedures — in our state-of-the-art operating rooms.

Minimally invasive surgery, which uses small incisions to reduce scarring and speed recovery, is now performed in just about every surgical specialty — from orthopedic and general surgery to complex brain surgery. More and more, it is becoming the standard, rather than the exception, in surgical care.

Not every surgery can be performed with minimally invasive techniques. Check with your surgeon about whether you may be a candidate for a minimally invasive approach.

Discover how you can benefit from surgery at Southcoast.

Stroke: Primary Stroke Center

The three hospitals that make up Southcoast Hospitals Group have earned designation by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) as Primary Stoke Service providers.

Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River, St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford and Tobey Hospital in Wareham recently completed the rigorous application and site review process necessary to each be named among the state's Primary Stroke Service providers.

"Similar to knowing the signs of a heart attack, we want to continue to educate the community on the signs, symptoms and treatment of stroke and the importance of receiving treatment quickly," said Marcia Liggin, RN, Chief Nursing Officer at Southcoast.
