St. Joseph’s Medical Center (St. Joseph’s) in Stockton, California will soon provide improved imaging services to their patients in the San Joaquin Valley. As a replacement of the existing and aged Catherization Laboratory #1, Nacht & Lewis worked with St. Joseph’s to place and build out the new state-of-the-art Hybrid Operating Room (OR), allowing them to offer more diverse surgical procedures to their patients. A hybrid operating room is a surgical theatre that is equipped with advanced medical imaging devices, in this case a Siemens Artis Zeego imaging system coupled with Maquet Booms for anesthesia, perfusion, equipment, monitors and lighting and image stream audio-visual integration (images, video, intercom, music). These imaging devices enable minimally-invasive surgery, which is less traumatic for the patient.
With the latest imaging technology, St. Joseph’s 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.
This project received occupancy on Friday, May 6th for staff training and will start treating patients within the next few weeks. Go to On the Boards to learn more about this complex healthcare project.
