PAMC recently completed a remodel to their Single Plane Hybrid Operating Room 17 to incorporate industry-leading image-guided therapy solutions for neuro-interventional Bi-Plane procedures. The project improves access to care for Providence Alaska Medical Center communities within the neuroscience and surgical/procedural service lines.
The new Bi-Plane equipment offers two-dimensional and three-dimensional capabilities that allow the neurosurgeon and neuroradiologist to view the brain, arteries, and spine with one single injection of X-ray dye and state-of-the-art imaging. In addition to Neurosurgical procedures, the new OR 17 is designed for use by multiple other disciplines including Vascular Surgeries, and Cardiothoracic Surgeries.
The tight schedule and multiple user groups challenged the design and engineering team, who successfully coordinated equipment between three major vendors and the contractor team. The hybrid operating room boasts a new Philips Azurion 7 series Biplane image-guided therapy and an SLD Airframe. The SLD system incorporates a fully integrated structural, air diffusion, and lighting system, and Indigo Clean Lighting, a new continuous visible light disinfection lighting technology.
