The medical center has a 24-hour physician staffed emergency room; a full range of women's services including obstetrics and gynecology; pediatrics; internal medicine; family practice; cardiology; general surgery; orthopedic surgery; urology; nuclear medicine and a full range of diagnostic services such as CT Scan, MRI, X-ray and laboratory.
