Redlands Community Hospital Foundation Provides Funds For New Robotic Operating Room Tables

REDLANDS, CA – August 23, 2018 – Through a Redlands Community Hospital Foundation grant, Redlands Community Hospital has purchased two Trumpf Medical™ TruSystem® 7000dV surgical tables that work in unison with its da Vinci robotic surgical system, equipment that performs minimally invasive surgery.

Designed for everyday surgical needs, the table’s robotic ability to move in 32 different positions allows the doctor to tilt the operating table in real time to improve navigation during surgery. The table is light enough for surgical technicians to move it to and from operating rooms and strong enough to hold patients weighing up to 1,000 pounds.

Robotics are now used for many medical procedures and benefit patients by reducing hospital stays, minimizing pain, decreasing risk of surgical site infections, less scarring, better outcomes, and faster recovery.

“Medicine advances at such a rapid rate,” said Bonita Aceto, director of surgery at Redlands Community Hospital. “Our commitment to providing exceptional care means giving our patients access to the latest technology that improves comfort, care and outcomes.”

The hospital was able to purchase these advanced articulating operating tables through a grant from the Redlands Community Hospital Foundation.

“The delivery of exceptional healthcare at the hospital is the foundation’s highest priority, ” said Jan Opdyke, President of Redlands Community Hospital Foundation. “ We are grateful for philanthropic support that enabled us to improve the quality of care of our patients by purchasing these surgery tables.”

Late last year, the hospital began the renovation of its Surgery Services Department. The renovated 8,700 square foot surgery department will add four new operating rooms, including a new hybrid intervention suite that will allow the hospital to provide treatment for a wide range of neurological and vascular conditions, and perform many of the most complex surgical procedures. The expansion will increase the hospital’s surgical capacity to 12 operating rooms. The addition to the Surgery Services Department is expected to be completed in 2019.
