The Arizona Cancer Center is a new 7 story ambulatory cancer center, being built in coordination with the campus of St. Joseph Hospital. The new facility will provide patients with cancer screening, diagnostic and interventional treatment. Comprehensive imaging services include mammography, radiography, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, PET, MRI and CT. Interventional services include endoscopy, stereotactic biopsy, angiography, cardiac catheterization.
The University of Miami Health System is expanding its clinical services south of its main campus which is located in the Civic Center of Miami. The new Center will provide an array of outpatient clinical services with a focus on oncology, orthopedics, cardio vascular care, and ophthalmology. The 220,000 square foot facility will have approximately 116 clinics, multi-modality diagnostic imaging, RAD/ONC, 6 surgical suites, interventional radiology, physical and rehabilitation medicine, and support services.
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.
