UnityPoint Health Methodist - Open Heart 1 : Peoria, Illinois
675 square feet | $300,000
Bringing this hospital’s existing open-heart operating room up to current standards with the addition of state-of-the-art equipment required us to work on a condensed scheduled, as the space could not be used during renovations. In addition, limited ceiling space made it challenging to accommodate new booms with lighting for surgeons.
KED SOLUTION : Infection Control, HVAC and Electrical Upgrades
Renovating this critical operating room quickly and efficiently required detailed planning. One crucial component was infection control. We installed surgical-grade anti-microbial lighting equipment and designed the HVAC system to provide a minimum of 21 air changes per hour, resulting in positive air pressure and a cleanliness level equivalent to ISO class 8. We also upgraded the electrical system with isolation panels to meet code, designed a new carbon dioxide manifold room and extended medical gases to new, state-of-the-art surgical booms
