“From the Monarch Platform, which helps diagnose lung cancer earlier, to the ROSA robot, which allows for more precise knee replacements, we’re proud to bring so many cutting-edge medical advancements to this region,” Chief Operating Officer Al Hurley said. “We’ve also added several specialists to our team, including a maternal-fetal medicine specialist to assist women with complicated pregnancies and urogynecologist to help women with pelvic floor disorders.”

What's your biggest challenge?

“Maintaining a strong health care workforce is a nationwide challenge, from which we are not immune,” Hurley said. “We’ve taken several measures to alleviate this issue, like providing competitive compensation, flexible scheduling and accelerating recruiting efforts. These steps have ensured continued high-quality care for our patients. They also enhance the joy and gratitude that accompany a career in health care.”
