Hybrid OR Build-Out

Aultman Hospital

As a result of a need for a flexible operating space that could accommodate a wide variety of advanced surgical procedures, Hasenstab Architects designed a new, 3,600-square foot Hybrid OR Suite build-out for Aultman Hospital in Canton, Ohio. The new Hybrid OR will be used for procedures such as: TAVR, Carotid Artery Stenting, Endovascular AAA Repair, Peripheral Angioplasty & Stenting and more.

The OR was built in shell space adjacent to the Hospital’s existing Cardiovascular ORs. The 1,050-square foot OR was designed for the GE Discovery 730 Imaging Unit.

Support space includes a control room, entrance/scrub area, equipment room, OR storage, general storage, and a mechanical/electrical support room. A new 10,000 CFM dedicated air handling unit was also part of the design to service the new Hybrid OR and a future OR in adjacent shell space.

The design process involved using an integrated approach to solicit end-user feedback through the use of a full scale mock-up, and end-user involvement. Administrators, facility engineers, clinical staff, and equipment vendors were included in the process to help facilitate coordination efforts. The design team, end-users and staff walked through multiple scenarios in a full-scale mock-up room for a variety of surgical procedures to ensure correct placement of equipment, as well as to verify the most efficient room size and layout.

The end result is a Hybrid OR that is one of the most technologically advanced in the region with the capability and flexibility of accommodating a significant list of advanced surgical procedures currently offered by Aultman Hospital, as well as future developments in surgical services.
