The new Exempla Saint Joseph Heritage project 7 story 750,000 sq ft. expansion will provide new spaces for advanced imaging and interventional suites as well as updated environments for inpatient areas. The Project includes 348 private rooms, a emergency, lab, Surgery and Interventional Neuro/Cardio Services, 2 hybrid OR’s, 3 cath labs, 2 IR’s, 2 EP Labs, and related prep/recovery areas, Simulation Labs, Women’s L&D, Postpartum, NICU, Adult ICU, and Acute Care beds for Orthopedic and Oncology Services.
The 9-story, 330,000 square foot Heart and Vascular building is dedicated to heart and vascular treatment. In addition to patient rooms and state-of-the-art operating rooms, cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology labs are included. These areas allow for the most advanced technology to be incorporated as new innovations are developed.
The Pavilion Project will provide a new, enlarged operating and interventional platform for surgeons, endovascular surgeons and interventional radiologists to perform procedures. This nine level facility, includes a basement expansion of CS/Materials, a new two story main entrance, lobby, and patient drop off area and two interventional platform floors. The third floor includes six interventional imaging suites and a hybrid OR. The fifth floor includes six new operating rooms, with an intra-operative CT, blood bank, OR pharmacy and PACU, Prep/Recovery beds.
Hybrid Rooms – the “Interventional Platform” flexible for any combination of subspecialties to bring image guidance to enable new procedures and interventions. It’s exciting to be working with many leaders such as:
It’s been interesting through the detailed planning of a variety of hybrid rooms that the table has become somewhat of a compromise. Once the focus shifts from determining what imaging modality – fluoroscopy, CT, MR, etc. and determining level of surgical intervention for lights and booms, the table becomes the next level of focus. Sometimes the table decision can get dismissed as a “given” to come with the imaging system.
