An essential part of the St. Benedict Joseph Medical Center is to host visiting surgical teams who offer their services free of charge to the poor. Almost every kind of surgery and specialty that can be carried out in a mostly outpatient facility is needed.
SBJ has four operating rooms and all the basic services of a surgical suite from pre-op to recovery. It also provides support services such as consult rooms, pharmacy, and patient rooms for short-term observation after surgery.
