Surgery Center

Advanced surgical care has been a part of Blank Children's Hospital for many years. Our pediatric surgeons perform surgeries in a state-of-the-art surgery center, located at Iowa Methodist Medical Center and Blank Children's Hospital. This is a surgery "Center of Excellence" and features a dedicated pediatric surgery area.

The surgery center offers:

  • Separation of adult and pediatric patients, acute and non-acute patients.
  • Dedicated pediatric pre-operative area which allows for parents to stay with their children until they are taken into surgery.
  • Patient and family amenities - a dedicated pediatric surgery waiting area separate from the adult waiting area.
  • Enhanced patient confidentiality and privacy.
  • Child Life staff to help prepare children for what to expect before, during and after the surgery process.
  • On-site cafe for convenience of family members waiting for their loved ones.
  • Elevator with direct access to the cafeteria for meals.
  • Pagers to alert family members when their child is out of surgery.
