Specialty Services

At Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, we understand that you sometimes require treatment for specific health-related issues that reach beyond your primary care doctor. That's why we offer a comprehensive range of specialty care services that include colon and rectal care, high risk maternal-fetal care, treatment of the ear, nose and throat (ENT), pain management, vascular services, electrophysiology, neurosurgery and cardiology. And every team has the technology at their fingertips to ensure that you're always in the best of hands.

We make collaboration a priority, maintaining open lines of communication and regularly consulting with fellow specialists and referring physicians to determine the most effective treatment plan. We're committed to continuity of care and helping you make informed decisions.
