“SMART” OPERATING ROOM
Jupiter Medical Center has always been at the forefront of technology.
The new Surgery Institute will include 16 new ORs of the future that will
utilize intelligent tools to improve patient health. These new “Smart”
ORs will use state-of-the-art equipment that is digitally integrated so
the patient’s information will be at the surgeon’s fingertips.
Surgeons will be able to access a patient’s images during surgery,
and transmit images from the
operating room to specialists for real-time consultation.
The Surgery Institute’s futuristic, 1,000-square-foot surgical theater
will feature technologies such as highdefinition cameras and ceiling-mounted
3-D scanners that will enable multidisciplinary teams of surgeons, anesthesiologists,
nurses, interventionalists and technicians to perform both endovascular
and openheart procedures, shifting between techniques in the same session
INFECTION CONTROL AND PATIENT SAFETY
The Surgery Institute will foster efficient and safe surgical care through
sophisticated infection control solutions, sterile processing, anesthesia
workrooms and multiple nurses’ stations. The enhancement of ultraviolet
technology throughout the Surgery Institute will help eliminate bacteria
that manual processes can miss. Additionally, the operating room design
will aim to reduce surface contamination through material selection and
PATIENT-CENTERED AND CAREGIVER FRIENDLY DESIGN
A larger Surgery Waiting Area will provide added comfort for caregivers
and families. This area will also include private consultation rooms where
medical staff and surgeons can consult with family members preoperatively
and postoperatively. A state-of-the-art patient tracking system will be
integrated into the overall design of the surgery center to provide seamless
and error-free tracking of patients as they pass from pre-op to surgery
and on to recovery. This tracking system will provide nurses, and surgeons
up-to-the-minute knowledge of the patient’s progress, as well as
aid in timely communication to the patient’s family or caregiver.
