It is a very exciting time at Doctors Community Hospital as we continue to grow and expand our facilities and services to meet the health care needs of those who live and work in Prince George’s County.
The hospital is moving forward with its plans to renovate and expand the Surgical Services Suites at Doctors Community Hospital. Another boon for surgical services at the hospital is the recent addition of a da Vinci® STM Surgical System, a state-of-the-art robotic system for noninvasive surgery. The first in Prince George’s County, the system allows our physicians to perform complex surgeries resulting in less pain, less blood loss, shorter hospital stays, fewer complications and faster return to normal activities for patients. The acquisition of this technology represents our commitment to provide Prince George’s County with the best patient care through the latest advancements in surgery.
The hospital’s surgical services also are expanding with the launch of a comprehensive program for those struggling with weight loss; the program will include offering minimally invasive Lap-Band® surgery. With nearly one-third of U.S. adults suffering from obesity, this surgery—coupled with diet, exercise and behavior modification—can help patients lose weight. To learn more about Lap-Band surgery, please join us for one of our free educational seminars.
In closing, I thank you for your ongoing support of Doctors Community Hospital and our efforts to enhance the health and wellness of our patients and their families. The hospital is committed to continue to invest in technology, facility upgrades and highly skilled individuals—all of which help ensure that we can provide the excellent health care you need and have come to expect from Doctors Community Hospital.
