The largest of the Division’s 11 departments and subdivisions are General Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery. The Division performs more than 24,000 surgeries annually, including complex procedures in all areas.
As part of its community outreach, the Division operates an innovative Breast Health Center that offers early screening and special educational programs for Bedouin women.
