BSA LifeStructures converted Memorial Medical Center’s Cath Lab into a Hybrid Operating Room (OR) for several reasons. Patient safety came foremost. Due to limited space available and the need for an additional operating room, the combination of both made sense. Solutions differ for each facility.
The combination of superior diagnosis capability and decreased physical impact to the patient have resulted in faster recovery from the one procedure versus the typical two procedure process. The ability to perform, record and broadcast a combination of catheterization and surgical procedures in one collaborative space has given Memorial Medical Center the opportunity to improve heart care in Springfield and the surrounding communities.
