Wythe County Community Hospital provides medical specialties and surgical services to the community. We provide same day surgical procedures as well as more complex surgeries.
We offer many services, including:
Surgical Services include the Out-patient and In-patient Departments, the Endoscopy Department, the Operating Room and the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (Recovery Room). These departments are responsible for the delivery of patient care.
The Outpatient department is open Monday through Friday. Patients are admitted through this department for minor surgery such as hernia repairs, gallbladder surgery, arthroscopic surgery, tonsillectomy, and cataract surgery. The Out-Patient department may infuse IV antibiotics and blood products as ordered by your primary physician. These infusions will be approved and managed by our in house hospitalist while you are here.
The Endoscopy Department operates from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday with on-call personnel available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. A variety of disorders are treated here: ulcers, hiatal hernia, reflux syndrome, and other upper GI diseases. We also treat rectal bleeding, hemorrhoids, colon polyps, diverticulitis, and any lower intestinal disease. Additionally, care is provided to patients with GI disorders and/or foreign bodies.
The Operating Room is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Cases are scheduled during the day and call teams cover the department after hours. A Registered Nurse is always assigned as the Circulating Nurse.
The Recovery Room operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Care is provided to all age groups including infants, children, adolescents, young adults, middle-aged adults, and geriatrics. The unit is responsible for the immediate care of all patients following surgery. The unit is staffed by Registered Nurses.
Wythe County Community Hospital serves Wythe, Bland, and surrounding communities. For most who come through our doors, a trip to the hospital is rarely planned. As a result, patients families often find themselves needing a place to stay. Wythe County Community Hospital partnered with local hotels to provide hotel accommodations for patients families during their hospital visit. Click on the following links for reservations.
