ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, HYBRID OR
The new two-level Harold and Virginia Lash Heart and Vascular Center houses a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room and future electrophysiology lab. The hybrid OR is a state-of-the-art cardiovascular surgical theatre equipped with advanced medical imaging devices to enable minimally invasive surgery while bringing together doctors of different disciplines. This ground-up facility supports Southcoast Health’s structural heart procedures, vascular surgery and endovascular medicine. More advanced procedures will take place in the electrophysiology lab, including cryoablation and convergent hybrid ablation for patients with atrial fibrillation.
Timberline constructed the addition in an active parking lot adjacent to the hospital’s main loading dock. The addition was integrated and connected to the hospital’s existing surgical suite. Conducting work within an active clean surgical center in addition to the confines of a very tight site presented logistical challenges. An essential component of the project delivery system, the team developed and implemented a comprehensive pre-determined Infection Control Risk Assessment plan to create a safe, risk-free environment during construction.Back to Healthcare & Civic Projects
