The new hybrid operating theatre is among the most sophisticated theatres in Australia featuring state-of-the art medical infrastructure and artificial intelligence backed Robotic Imaging technology to enhance and grow existing cardiac surgical services available at the hospital.
Some key elements of the projects were: the associated hybrid theatre control room and anaesthetic bay, refurbished and expanded ICU and recovery beds, new theatre staff change amenities, and staff rooms and services for a future stat lab.
The suite combines the advantages of a surgical operating theatre with high-end imaging to allow teams of cardiologists, interventionalists, surgeons, radiologists, and nurses to treat patients requiring complex surgical work for cardiac and vascular disease.
A technically complex project, we utilised our health expertise from our Melbourne office from the earliest stages of the project to deliver the best design outcomes to the client. The project was split into 5 main sections and is one of the most technical operating theatres that ADP has completed to date.
Involving both new build and refurbishment works, the new hybrid theatre was located half in the existing building and half in the new section of the building. This represented significant coordination issues with the existing structural support as well as the new structure.
The works were completed without impacting hospital services being delivered in the existing adjacent operating theatres, which remained fully operational throughout the project. Our experienced health team worked in close collaboration with critical stakeholders, to ensure that any risks were mitigated, minimising any impact on patients and visitors.
