Outpatient Surgery Pavilion

The Keller Surgery Pavilion is a model establishment in both design and function. The pavilion is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to bringing ease and comfort to surgery patients while upholding the expert care the Shoals community has come to expect from the Helen Keller Hospital Staff.

Technologically Advanced

The Pavilion marries the latest technologies and streamlined patient care, providing a more efficient experience for surgeons and patients alike. Simplifying day-surgery by reducing each patient's wait time and recovery period is a priority made easy with this 16,751 square foot, ground level addition to Helen Keller Hospital's premier surgical program. Expansive operating rooms are outfitted with the most innovative, advanced surgical equipment and poised to perform a number of multi-disciplinary surgical services including:

General Surgery
Oral/Maxillofacial Surgery
Orthopedic Surgery
Otolaryngology (ENT)


The Surgery Pavilion is designed with the comfort of patients and their families in mind. The spacious waiting room with convenient vending area anchors the building's circular flow - from a friendly, efficient check-in, to personal pre-op and recovery areas where family members are invited to join the patient. With quick and easy registration available by telephone, patients can eliminate the stress of paperwork on procedure day.

Sail Through Surgery

Sail Through Surgery is the area's only pediatric pre-operative education program. Our goal with Sail Through Surgery is to introduce the caregiver and child to our Keller Surgery Pavilion, the staff, and the surgical process in a fun, non-threatening way. This educational pre-surgery tour will put caregivers and patients at ease and make the surgery day experience much smoother.

Who: Attendance is highly recommended for patients ages 6 months to 12 years.
What: The program includes a full tour of the Pavilion with a registered nurse and a member of our anesthesiology team. The caregiver and child may explore a surgical suite, examine the equipment, and ask any questions they have. The tour ends with a take home gift for the child and light refreshments.
When: Tuesday afternoons at 4 p.m. Each tour lasts approximately 1 hour. At least one parent or caregiver is required to attend with each child. Due to space constraints, we cannot accommodate siblings.
