Nacht & Lewis worked with St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, California, to place a state-of-the-art Hybrid Operation Room (OR) Suite in the existing Cauterization Laboratory #1 (Cath Lab), allowing St. Joseph’s to offer more diverse surgical procedures to their patients. With the latest imaging technology, they will have the ability to reduce the frequency at which patients have to leave the area for multiple procedures, which are currently performed in other facilities. The project includes the purchase and build-out of a Hybrid Catherization Laboratory and Operating Room to go in the aged Cath Lab location. They Hybrid OR Suite features a Siemens Artis Zeego imaging system coupled with Maquet Booms for anesthesia, perfusion, equipment, monitors and lighting and an image stream audio-visual integration (images, video, intercom, music).
To accommodate the space requirements for the new Hybrid OR environment, the existing Cath Lab had to be increased in size to meet the minimum square footage for an operating room by displacing inefficient circulation space in the adjacent corridor. With this change, the Hybrid OR extended the surgical department by one complete procedural bay into the existing Cath Lab, requiring a significant effort to analyze workflow and come up with an effective solution for extending the sterile core while maintaining an efficient and code compliant circulation for the Cath Lab Department.
