Surgical Services

Paris Community Hospital offers both inpatient and outpatient surgery performed by on-staff and visiting physicians.

The complexity of your procedure along with the recommendations of your physician will determine the surgical options available to you. Outpatient surgery and recovery usually require less than a 24-hour stay at the hospital. Inpatient surgery requires that the patient be admitted to acute care services after a procedure is completed.

Paris Community Hospital performs a variety of sophisticated surgical procedures including, but not limited to, the following. To find out if your surgery can be performed at PCH/FMC, call 217-465-2606, Ext. 725.
