Around-the-Clock Physician Assistants
An important feature of the Holy Cross Hospital Bariatric Program is our dedicated team of physician assistants. Our physician assistants work hand-in-hand with our bariatric surgeons and are in the hospital and available to our patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They help make each patient's hospital stay as smooth and comfortable as possible during and after surgery.
A Dedicated Coordinator
Sonia Portillo, the Holy Cross Hospital Bariatric Surgery Program coordinator, partners with all bariatric patients to ensure each patient has the most successful experience.
