The St. David’s Medical Center’s Hybrid (SDMC) Operating Room (OR) Project was part of Phase III of the SDMC Suite Renovation Project.
Phase I included renovation of OR 11 and OR 12.Phase II consisted of the relocation of the Endoscopy Department and renovation of OR 16.
Phase III was the creation of ORs 17 (Hybrid) and OR 18.
The Hybrid OR is a 1,500 square foot OR Suite including the OR itself, a dedicated Control Room and two dedicated Equipment Rooms. The OR incorporates a Philips Allura FD20 FlexMove imaging system, advanced Monitor, Med-Gas and Equipment booms by Trumpf and specialized systems integration to support Neurologic, EP and Cardiac Catheterization procedures.
One unique feature of the Hybrid OR is the supply cabinets inside the OR. To avoid support staff from having to turn on overhead lights or use flashlights to retrieve supplies during a procedure, we designed internal lights in each supply cabinet that turn on automatically whenever the cabinet door is opened.
