Meet Our Medical Staff

Our team of physicians and physician’s assistants provide care and support to families during all aspects of their illnesses. We strive to give the same attention to the patient and family as if they were our own. We respect privacy and work hard to maintain that trust between physician, family, and patients.

Madison Community Hospital is fortunate to have a general surgeon on its active medical staff. Dr. Robert Summerer performs traditional and laprascopic procedures. His office, Eastern Plains Surgical is also located in the hospital.
