Better results with advanced technologies


Small enough to make a big difference.

Our physician-owned hospital has chosen to focus on what we do better than anyone else – technologically advanced surgeries, 24/7 short-wait emergency care, diagnostic imaging, occupational medicine and internal medicine. Families in Durango and the Four Corners receive world-class care right here in the neighborhood.

Our manageable size and narrow mission generate better outcomes for our patients. We actively recruit physicians who are experts in their fields, and then follow through with training on the latest techniques and a commitment to acquiring new proven technologies. As a smaller, more agile facility, Animas Surgical Hospital can bring in expertise and equipment much more quickly than larger entities. We also actively research and then deliver the procedures our community needs most.

You have a choice in hospitals. And communities with more than one option typically deliver better healthcare no matter which hospital they visit. We hope that you’ll consider Animas Surgical Hospital as your home base for superior care.
