Our Greatest Responsibility: Your Health in Our Hands

Your health and safety is our top priority at Valley Presbyterian Hospital, and these factors are especially important in the operating room. We provide our physicians and surgical services staff with the tools and advanced technology they need to perform a full range of surgical procedures and to deliver the highest quality of care.
