Henry County Medical Center encountered a need for the expansion of their cystoscopy and angiographic diagnostic equipment. The operating room (OR) also required renovation and three additional OR suites in the emergency department. The project utilized the wasted and inefficient spaces from adjacent departments and created new cysto operating room and angio suites. A new recovery room was created separate of the surgery suites to meet the increasing demand.
The existing surgery suites were overloaded as well and required an update to the angio equipment. The angio suite was completely renovated with up-to-date technology, which required an overhead, mounted Angiography C-arm unit. Extensive structural supports were threaded through the existing low roof structure. The suite area was 1210-square feet. Also, the existing radiology suite was also renovated with up-to-date technology and included a new staff support area, reception area, and restrooms. The suite area is 600-square feet.
