Both hospitals provide 24-hour emergency services in an assigned level trauma designation, cancer treatment services, diabetes education, complete diagnostic imaging, accredited laboratories, outpatient surgeries, cardiac and pulmonary treatment and rehab programs, and have adjoining medical parks and specialty clinics.
