The expansion welcomes in enhanced robotic capabilities, including the DaVinci XI and Aquabeam system.  The fourth generation DaVinci robot assists physicians performing minimally invasive procedures across a wide range of procedures, while maximizing efficiency.  The Aquabeam provides Aquablation therapy, which delivers minimally invasive benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) surgery to treat lower urinary tract symptoms.  It’s the first and only heat free, image guided treatment for BPH.

On top of all the enhancements surrounding patient care, there is a newly renovated family waiting area.  The hospital continues to grow, allowing it to treat more patients using the advanced technology to provide for the best possible patient outcomes as it continues to invest in the future of healthcare.
