Constructed with patient safety and OR uptime in mind, the model is designed and integrated to help enhance protection against infection and increase cleanability, while employing intelligent technology and time-efficiency components.
“Some of the challenges hospitals face in maximizing safety and uptime of their ORs are very complex and require new thinking about design, workflow and future-proofing,” said Tommy Van Galder, vice president and general manager of Stryker’s Communications business. “We’ve learned a lot from our 30 years of OR planning, design and installation experience, plus a rich legacy of product innovation, to evolve OR design and integration.”
The OR of the Future features:
“The OR of the Future transforms the traditional operating room into a modern, state-of-the-art environment. Seeing this model OR allowed us to envision a space that empowers surgical teams and allows them to focus on what matters most—delivering quality, best-in-class patient care,” said Jenny Niblock, chief clinical officer of Citizens Medical Center in Kansas.
“The floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall experience of the OR of the Future showcases best-in-class products and what a partnership looks like with Stryker as your integrated OR provider,” said Van Galder. “This is about showing how high-performing ORs can look, feel and perform—and working together with you to establish realistic goals, timelines and deliverables that make that a reality.”
