Digital Operating Suites

Digital Operating Suites allow physicians to access patient information with a touch of a button, eliminating the time to get that information outside of the OR. Picture Archiving Communication system (PACS) allows surgeons to view multiple images on 40-inch monitors without ever having to leave the sterile field.

Operating suites are approximately 640 square feet each and have a fully integrated computer/communication system. The Condor system manages a group of computers and creates a surgical command center that allows surgeons and staff control of medical equipment, lighting, and patient information. Using touch panels, they can make changes from multiple locations within the operating suite. This allows our specialized staff to spend less time adjusting equipment and more time attending to the patient's needs.

The digital imaging capabilities enable surgeons to access patient information with a touch of a button, eliminating the time to get that information outside the OR. Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) allows surgeons to view multiple images on 40-inch monitors without ever having to leave the sterile field.

These new operating suites are also used for teaching and research. Physicians can watch a surgery in real time in a separate area without having to be in the operating room. This makes it perfect for teaching or consulting.
