State-of-the-Art Surgical Suites
The Surgery Department at CMC includes 10 state-of-the-art surgical suites: eight for general surgery and two for cardiac surgery. The addition of a hybrid operating room in 2012 combines the traditional operating room with the best imaging and cardiac catheterization equipment. The inclusion of multiple technologies in the same operating room fosters innovative surgical approaches that can improve patient outcomes.
Our Hybrid Operating Room can be used either for minimal invasive or open surgery. Through real-time imaging a patient’s anatomy can be evaluated as necessary during the surgical procedure. The “hybrid” concept comes from the combination of an operating room and an interventional suite. By combining the two, excellent imaging and catheter intervention can be performed. The Hybrid-OR also has the ability to be utilized by an interdisciplinary team leading to increased flexibility and efficiency of workflow.
At Catholic Medical Center, we are dedicated to delivering the highest standards of care to meet all your surgical needs.
