Acute Care Surgery
Our Acute Care Surgery (ACS) Program addresses the national trends of workforce shortage of general surgeons, capacity challenges, and an overall shift to an outpatient model for surgery.
Our program has been designed to improve the timeliness and quality of care delivered to you and your loved ones with urgent and emergent surgical needs at UNC REX Express Care Hospital.
For your peace of mind, we are staffed 24/7 by physicians from Rex Surgical Specialists with Dr. Peter Milano serving as the program’s Medical Director. Dr. Stacy Bennett and Dr. Uday Kavde, new physicians to Rex Surgical Specialists, also serve as surgicalists in the program.
The ACS program improves enhances our ability to provide service to acutely ill surgical patients by resulting enhanced quality of care and increased patient satisfaction.
