Surgery | ProMedica Memorial Hospital

Surgery at ProMedica Memorial Hospital in Fremont Ohio is held in the state-of-the-art Weitzel-Kern Surgery Center, which opened its doors in January 2002. Since 2002, the center has been seeing more than 5,000 patients annually. The center has six operating rooms and 18 private patient bays and is approximately 30,000 square feet in size.

The surgery center was built to maximize patient comfort and privacy. Surgery, post-operative recovery, waiting and discharge are all on the same level, minimizing patient transport and maximizing convenience. The patient recovery area is extremely private and comfortable, while the lobby, with its natural lighting and fireplace is an ideal setting for family and friends to await their love ones.

From hip-replacement and spine surgeries, to endoscopic and minimally invasive gynecological procedures as well as non-invasive, incisionless operations, Weitzel-Kern Surgery Center professionals provide top-notch, compassionate care to patients and their families.

Memorial Hospital's surgeons are continuing to offer more and more minimally and non-invasive surgeries. These types of procedures leave little or no scars, are often done on an outpatient basis and require little recovery time. Minimally and non-invasive surgeries, such as GYN and acid reflux related procedures allow patients to return to their daily lives much sooner than was previously possible.
