Hybrid Operating Room
Location: Tucson, Arizona - Southern Arizona VA Health Care System Size: 2,700 sq. ft. | Construction Cost: $3,100,000 | Design completed: 2017
The Hybrid OR project involves the conversion of one of the original primary operating rooms, adjacent storage and x-ray control, as well as an adjacent anesthesia work room into the a new hybrid operating suite.
Construction needed to be sequenced to maintain surgical support functions and was planned to assure that other operating rooms could continue in use with the required level of infection prevention and with minimized interruption due to building service/utility alterations.
Air handling equipment serving the majority of the surgery suite was replaced to achieve the necessary air exchange rates for the new hybrid room and to provide the required service for imaging equipment computer electronics.
