Plan for change: future flexibility in OR design

Monday, 28 September 2015

Hybrid OR, Banner Health - University Medical Ctr TucsonScaling up in size, incorporating hybrid technologies, and designing for future flexibility are three aspects that Shepley Bulfinch’s Mario Vieira, David Meek, and Srey Sherman talk about in “Ready for the cutting edge” in the latest issue of Healthcare Design magazine. The article includes a reference to Shepley Bulfinch’s two hybrid ORs completed by the firm as part of a recent surgical services renovation at Banner Health’s University Medical Center in Tucson.

David Meek also discusses mock-ups and hands-on medical staff participation in the OR planning process in an online sidebar, “How to engage in stakeholder design.” Shepley Bulfinch has used full-scale mock-ups in hospital design, most recently for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan clinical tower and the critical care tower for Boston Children’s Hospital, which incorporated a series of real-time simulations as part of the exercise in July.
