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.
