Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and helped us celebrate this state-of-the-art technology available at Hillcrest Medical Center.  

Students joined the marketing team and members from the operating room at Hillcrest Medical Center, along with nursing students from the community to see what the daVinci Robotic Surgical System can do.  They had a great time trying out the controls themselves, while enjoying gelato from our new Coffee and Gelato Café.
