About Us

Founded in 1994, Lincoln Surgical Hospital offers our patients a truly unique and memorable hospital experience. Unlike other traditional hospitals, Lincoln Surgical Hospital provides our patients the opportunity to recover from their surgical procedure in a relaxing environment with more personal attention and care from our medical staff. Our facility boasts larger, more comfortable patient rooms and amenities frequently available in five star hotels.

Our philosophy of care is simple – we want to provide our patients, staff and doctors with an environment that lends itself to healing and quality healthcare so we can return you to your normal lifestyle as soon as possible. Lincoln Surgical Hospital has a excellent nurse to patient ratio, which means you or your loved one will receive more personalized attention at our facility than anywhere else in our region. It’s also important to note that our infection rates at Lincoln Surgical Hospital are much lower than the industry average, helping to ensure the quickest recovery possible for our patients.
