Expanded Surgery Services About to Open
Excitement is building as Redlands Community Hospital’s highly anticipated
new expanded surgery services are scheduled to open soon. The 8,700 square
foot area will add four new operating rooms (ORs), increasing the hospital’s
surgical capacity to 12 ORs.
The new area will be housed in a one-story structure, which was added onto
the hospital’s current eight operating rooms.
New OR sets us apart
The surgery services addition will feature a technologically advanced 1,100
square foot hybrid bi-plane operating suite not available in the region.
The hybrid OR serves multiple functions in one large area.
It has a sophisticated imaging system that can be used to perform some
of the most complex minimally invasive neurosurgery and vascular procedures.
It also has an OR bed so that when patients need an immediate open procedure,
doctors can perform surgery in the same room without any loss of time,
making it safer for the patient.
“We don’t have to keep a separate suite on standby in case
it’s needed for interventional procedures that convert to open surgery,”
says Bonita Aceto RN, MSN, CNOR, RNFA, director of perioperative, infusion
and specialty services. “So we’re able to optimize use of
our OR suites. This ability sets us apart from all surrounding hospitals,
and means patients and physicians will have better access and safer care.”
