Valley Private Hospital, Melbourne, Australia

The Valley Private Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, has recently undergone a major transformation and expansion. It increased its bed count, invested heavily in new technologies, and installed six conventional ORs, two cath labs, and a Hybrid OR. The hospital partnered with Getinge and Siemens for this undertaking.

The Hybrid OR features a Maquet Magnus operating table synchronized with the with the Siemens Artis zeego angiography system. Getinge also supplied modular Maquet Variop wall and ceiling elements, OR Integration Maquet Tegris, Maquet PowerLED surgical lights, and surgical and anaesthetic pendants specially adapted to fit the Siemens display. What’s more, the room features the world’s first installation of the Maquet Magnus table and the Siemens Artis zeego imaging system – the trailblazer for what is now a popular choice.

Solutions for challenging situations

Getinge was involved from the design through the planning stages of the project, helping to create a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room within a limited space. Other challenges included providing storage for the heart lung machine and other peripheral equipment, and organizing building work around the hospital’s day-to-day operations.

The Hybrid OR is used for multiple disciplines, including vascular and cardiac interventions, vascular surgery, neurosurgery, electrophysiology studies, and orthopedic and neurospinal image-guided surgery.
