AdventHealth Tampa in Florida has made significant investments in cutting-edge care by constructing The Taneja Center for Surgery, a $300M marvel that opened its doors in October 2021 and features 18 fully integrated ORs. Integrated platforms connect components of high-tech ORs, giving surgeons and members of the surgical team customizable and centralized control over instrumentation and devices, video routing, clinical data dashboards, surgical lighting and electronic medical records. They allow the latest imaging and data technologies to be incorporated into ORs without the placing of additional equipment, a space-saving plus that could benefit many surgery centers.
“Can you perform complex surgery in less sophisticated spaces?” says general surgeon Sharona Ross, MD, director of minimally invasive surgery and surgical endoscopy at AdventHealth Tampa. “Yes, but when you have access to a high-tech set-up, each step of the operation is so much easier to complete. The technology is truly amazing.”
