Exceptional surgery, right here, by providers who care about you

As part of {Y}OUR tomorrow, NMC goes beyond the warmth of caring you expect from a community hospital. We work to give you timely access to the experts and surgery you need, as well as keep surgery costs consistently below the state average while providing important financial assistance. That often means same week appointments at our surgical practices and same month or next month access for procedures. We do all this while keeping our surgical quality high, with rates of surgical site infection well below the national average.
