Our New Surgical Suites

The St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital was built just nine years after WWII. It might seem cliche to say, but times certainly have changed and healthcare is no exception. Our current Surgical Suites only keep pace with the medical advances in surgical care and technology of the past 60 years.

Today’s procedures are more minimally invasive, require limited in-patient care, and provide better recovery options than ever before. The Great Expansion includes a new Surgical Suites and will finally bring our facility up to the standards of the healthcare professionals who perform within our Hospital’s walls.
