The Evansville Surgery Center was developed in 1984 by a small group of local physicians as an alternative to the traditional hospital stay. Their goal was to have a convenient and patient-centered facility that offered personalized care.
Since 1984 the Evansville Surgery Center has provided outpatient surgical services to over 100,000 satisfied customers. Our medical staff has grown to over 172 physicians representing a variety of specialties.
