Medical and Surgical Services

No one likes to be sick. But isn't it nice to know that if you do become ill enough to need hospitalization, there's a place that will care for you with a "Hometown Touch"? Marshall Browning Hospital provides acute care hospitalization services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The patient rooms on our Medical/Surgical unit are clean, comfortable and spacious. Our housekeeping staff is the best in the area. We feel that an environment such as ours helps promote rapid healing. A part of this environment is our dedicated, knowledgeable and caring staff. Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses and Nursing Assistants work with your physician to provide care for both medical illness and surgical conditions. Other members of your healthcare team may include Respiratory Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Dietitians and Social Service Consultants.
