In Värmland Sweden we realized a new operation unit building as well as a renovation of an existing part of the Centralsjukhuset Karlstad. 15 operating rooms including one Hybrid Operating Room, preparation rooms, corridors, scrubs, a recovery area as well as a CSSD department were updated with Getinge products.
In close collaboration with both, the hospital and the contractor, Getinge developed a patient-centric tailored room concept that is characterized by functionality and appealing designs, supporting a calming, comforting ambience for patients and a pleasant working environment for staff.
Right from the start, hospital employees were involved to capitalize on valuable ideas and create individual OR environments that both patients and staff can identify with. The use of different wall colors and motifs from the Värmland County allowed easy orientation while providing a sense of familiarity.
As a result of fruitful and sincere discussions with all involved parties, a unique concept was created. It allows the surgeons to perform almost any kind of surgery in any operating theatre, enabling more flexible patient scheduling and increased efficiency.
This project is just the beginning of a long-term partnership and provides proof of what can be achieved through the power of close collaboration between a small but highly involved group of parties.
