Hays County’s rapid growth continues to bring in more amenities for its residents, and this time the expansion is happening in operating rooms. Ascension Seton Hays will be adding in two operating rooms to better serve residents undergoing complicated surgical procedures.
“We are excited to expand our surgical services with the addition of two new ORs,” said Joan Ross, chief operating officer at Ascension Seton Hays. “We continue to add to our advanced tools and sophisticated devices in our OR suites which help surgeons perform complex procedures for patients in Hays County and beyond. As the community grows, Ascension Seton Hays will continue to expand, offering quality care, close to home.”
These operating rooms will support complicated cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, plastic, neurological surgical care and more. Additionally, they will feature advanced, built-in technology to expand surgical procedures with minimally-invasive robotics applications.
Robotically-enabled surgeries include gynecological, breast surgery and more options.
The hospital recently launched a bariatrics and digestive health program, which will be supported by the new operating rooms.
The operating rooms are expected to open in the Fall of 2021.
