    Downtown Durango’s
    closest hospital—and ER.

Small enough to make a big difference.

We’re the first to admit that Animas Surgical Hospital is not the biggest around—and we don’t want to be. Instead, our hospital is very, very good at surgeries, 24/7 short-wait emergency care, diagnostic imaging, occupational medicine, and internal medicine.

Because we’re focused on patient satisfaction, we deliver better results and more positive outcomes. Who wouldn’t be happy with a patient-to-nurse ratio of just 3:1, a near-zero infection rate  and truly personalized care? No wonder Animas Surgical Hospital routinely tops the charts in local, state and national awards for patient healthcare.

While we’ll never compete with the big guys, our local presence leads to better healthcare throughout the neighborhood. That’s because communities with multiple healthcare facilities typically staff more nurses and strive harder to keep patients healthy. At Animas Surgical Hospital, we think choice is a good thing.

As the closest hospital to downtown Durango, please give us a chance to earn your trust. Stop by today  or ask your doctor about Animas Surgical Hospital.
