Geisinger Holy Spirit has completed its $5.8 million operating room (OR) renovation project, which began in October 2018.
Originally, we had 14 general ORs and 4 cardiovascular ORs. Following completion of this project, we will have 11 general ORs and 4 cardiovascular ORs. The general ORs were each about 350 square feet. We now will have 5 rooms that are 800 square feet, 3 that are 700 to 800 square feet, and 2 that are 450 to 500 square feet. In addition, we will have a cystoscopy room.
Every Geisinger Holy Spirit OR will be the most sophisticated in the entire region. We will have the ability to do every type of operation in these new rooms, including cardiovascular and robotics.
The rooms have a fully integrated video system, which allows surgeons to have full access to imaging studies and call capabilities for educational purposes.
At Geisinger, our innovative ideas are inspired by the communities we serve – like our Fresh Food
Farmacy, a program that delivers life-saving healthy alternatives to patients with diabetes. With additional tools like our MyCode Community Health Initiative, one of the first health system genome sequencing
programs, and our new asthma app suite that we developed in partnership with AstraZeneca, it’s no wonder we’re ranked one of the Top 5 Most Innovative Healthcare Systems by Becker's Hospital Review. We continually work towards continuous improvement in a culture where everyone has a voice and firmly believe that better begins with all of us.
