Flexible Design for Efficient Staffing
Our health system clients continually challenge us to improve quality, reduce risk, and create staff efficiencies. St. Charles asked Clark/Kjos Architects to plan the future of their surgery, interventional catheterization, and angiography suites. Our plan brings about a gradual and flexible co-location of surgery and interventional medicine to create a unified sterile environment. It improves safety, combining patient prep, recovery, and support areas for efficient staffing and the economy of space.
The new hybrid operating room incorporates a state-of-the-art Philips Flex-move CT scanner. With over 1,000 square feet in operating room area, it supports sophisticated non-invasive vascular procedures, open surgery, or a combination.
