- Private recovery rooms offer you your own space to prepare for surgery and recover afterward until you’re feeling well enough to go home.
- An electronic patient tracking system lets your family and care team know exactly where you are at every point during the surgical process. Information is displayed in confidential and easy-to-understand terms on a screen in the family waiting room so visitors know whether a given patient is in pre-op, surgery or recovery.
- Pagers allow families to roam the main floor of the Prairie Center, view art displays or get a bite to eat at the Quarry Cafe and still feel in touch with their loved one in surgery. The pager alerts them when the patient is back in recovery.
- In operating suites, all endoscopic and cautery equipment is positioned on booms, so that nothing touches the floor – providing an increased measure of patient and staff safety.

Convenience and Easy Way-Finding
The Avera Surgery Center has its own dedicated entrance on the southwest corner of the Prairie Center. Just pull up to the covered entrance and take advantage of free valet parking. An elevator at the entrance will take you directly to the fourth floor for easy way-finding.
Most preoperative work will be done ahead of the surgery date to reduce your wait time, and post-operative medications are provided at the time of discharge. To save time, preregister online for your surgical procedure.
Planning for Your Procedure
When you come for your outpatient procedure, wear comfortable clothing. Bring all insurance cards and information, as well as a list of your medications and dosages, including supplements, herbal preparations and vitamins. Also bring any paperwork provided to you by your surgeon. It’s best to leave all valuables at home. If you will have anesthesia (with the exception of local anesthesia), you will need to arrange for a ride home.
When Your Child Will Have Surgery
We offer a separate pediatric recovery area. Parents can accompany their children to the surgical suite and rejoin them in the recovery area.
