Same Day and Inpatient Surgery

General and specialized surgeons in the region perform procedures and surgeries at Prairie Lakes Hospital and Mallard Pointe Surgical Center. Our surgery staff is trained to work with these surgeons and provide you with compassionate care. Support staff at Prairie Lakes can help you plan for your upcoming appointment, understand your insurance coverage as it relates to your surgery, and discuss with you the next steps following your surgery.

Family members are an important part of the care team. The contact person will receive a key to help them privately track their loved one's progress using a tracking board located in the waiting room at Prairie Lakes Hospital. The waiting area is stocked with coffee, snacks, and vending. Complimentary WiFi and a phone charging station are also available to make sure everyone has a positive experience.
