Time and Attention: Carolyn Evenson, Director of Surgery at Gothenburg Health, notes that patients get individualized attention by her surgery team. You are a name and not a number at Gothenburg Health. Although we are proud to offer a number of surgical proceedures, our traffic is not at a chaotic pace and proper time is allocated to all patients.

Hometown Benefits: The same familiar faces will care for you at Gothenburg Health regardless of whether you are having a cesarean birth, an appendectomy, a colonoscopy, a cataract surgery or your gallbladder removed! This familiarity reduces some of the stress of having surgery. The staff are cross trained to be proficient in all phases of surgical care.  The added conveniences of offering a wide variety of surgical and endoscopic procedures here in Gothenburg, close to your home, also contribute to a more manageable experience.
