Your Surgery at CMH

When you choose Community Memorial Hospital, you’re choosing a surgical experience focused on achieving your optimal health. At CMH, we believe our patients are a partner in their healthcare. Our surgeons and staff will work with you not only to achieve your surgical goals, but also to create a friendly and low-stress experience every step of the way. 

Our surgical specialties

CMH’s surgical specialties include: 

Inpatient vs outpatient surgery

As a hospital, CMH offers the benefit of both outpatient (sometimes called ‘day’ surgery) and inpatient surgery. Depending on your procedure and the type of monitoring you require during recovery, your surgeon will recommend you go home the same day or be admitted. 

If you do require an overnight stay, you’ll be moved to our inpatient unit, which features single-bed, spacious rooms with private adjoining bathrooms. 

CMH offers all of the services required for a successful surgery, including:

  • On-site imaging, including x-ray, CT, MRI, EKG, ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, PET/CT, echocardiograms, and mammography. 
  • Access to pre-op physical screenings. Please call CMH Raiter Family Clinic at 218-879-1271 to schedule. 
  • Post-surgery rehabilitative care (including physical, speech, and occupational therapies). 

Preparing for your surgery

To ensure your safety and comfort, we ask that you follow our pre-surgery guidelines. The guidelines listed below apply to all procedures. More specific instructions—including when you can eat or drink before your procedure—will be given to you by a nurse via phone call 7 days prior to your procedure.
