When you need surgery, you want the best trained physicians with experience in their specialty. You want a hospital with proven results, the most advanced technology and surgical options, a support team with compassion, and a state-of-the-art facility located close to your community. You want Jefferson Regional Medical Center.
Our physicians perform outpatient surgeries and procedures in the Jefferson Surgery Center, a specialized unit for surgical procedures that do not require an overnight stay. We also offer walk-in and by-appointment pre-surgical diagnostic testing at numerous locations throughout the community.
Jefferson Regional is implementing the American Orthopaedic Association's Own the BoneTM Program, an osteoporosis program for inpatients admitted to the hospital with a fragility fracture.
A new Geriatric Assessment Program provides an assessment of a person's abilities by an occupational therapist and a speech/language pathologist. The goal is to help the patient and their family determine if the patient is safe when they are alone in their home.
