Atlantic Health: Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute

Healthcare Cardiovascular Surgical & Interventional Acute Care
FCA provided architecture, planning, interior design, and medical equipment planning services for this new cardiovascular operating suite, an expansion of the main campus surgical suite, equipped with state-of-the-art technology designed for maximum flexibility. There are 8 operating rooms, including four cardiovascular ORs, 2 endovascular ORs, and 2 hybrid ORs with fixed Siemens imaging equipment (robotic arm imaging and a Bi-plane lab). Each OR is sized to accommodate multiple types of procedures and is equipped with robotics for minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. A central sterile supply corridor with case cart alcoves provides supplies and instruments to all of the ORs and minimizes travel distances for staff.

Each OR has internal/external teleconferencing technology built into its documentation stations – these promote education and training throughout the health system. Two ORs are configured with fixed imaging to support the latest in minimally invasive technologies for cardiology and neurological interventions.
