Our Advantages

As a multi-specialty surgical facility, Surgery Center Cedar Rapids is a leader in the national trend toward surgical procedures being performed outside hospital operating rooms. There are many good reasons for this kind of outpatient care.  Below are some of the advantages of Surgery Center Cedar Rapids.

  • Efficient. Turn-around time between surgeries is as much as three times faster than at hospitals, which means less waiting for patients.

  • Lower Cost.  We are the only stand-alone ambulatory surgery center in Linn County, so our costs are much lower than at a hospital or hospital-based facility. Our patient co-pays and out-of-pocket costs are often 30-40% less. A big reason for these lower costs is that surgery centers like ours are much more economical for Medicare and other insurers.

  • Dependable. Scheduled surgery times are not likely to be delayed or bumped by non-related emergencies, as they may be at hospitals.

  • Family-friendly. Children and families are treated with the utmost care. When a child is scheduled for surgery, parents are encouraged to be present as much as possible before and after surgery.

  • Comfortable. Patients and their families can relax in a pleasant environment, far from the emergency and trauma situations one may witness in a hospital.

  • Advanced. Surgery Center Cedar Rapids boasts the newest high-tech medical equipment. Patients can be confident in the knowledge that their physicians are able to treat them using the most advanced surgical tools available.

  • Convenient. Surgery Center Cedar Rapids bypasses the hassles of dealing with a large hospital. Just steps from our front door is free covered parking, with additional parking just as close. We provide private consultation rooms, 38 private patient care rooms and a private patient exit.

  • Centrally Located. We’re at First Avenue and 10th Street SE, just across from UnityPoint St. Luke’s Hospital, an ideal location in the MedQuarter medical district in the heart of Cedar Rapids. We’re convenient for both patients and physicians, with hospitals, accommodations and amenities nearby and easily accessible.

  • Personal. Our friendly staff offers both immediate, personal service and highly professional care.
