West Boca Medical Center to Expand Operating Rooms and Surgical ServicesSep 7, 2016
Boca Raton, Fla. (September 7, 2016) – West Boca Medical Center is planning a $9.9 million project designed to expand and enlarge operating room capabilities for modernization, improved efficiency and advanced technological capability. Construction, which is estimated to begin early next year, will include a new OR and the renovation and expansion of three of the five existing ORs. The beds in the post-anesthesia care unit will more than double from 6 to 14, and the unit will be remodeled as well.
One goal of the project, which is expected to be completed in about 18 months, is to provide more spacious ORs to accommodate orthopedic, spinal and robotic surgeries. The addition of the sixth OR will allow for more surgeries to be performed and provide more flexibility for surgeons to schedule cases.
“Here at West Boca Medical Center, we are dedicated to meeting the evolving healthcare needs of our community,” said Mitch Feldman, hospital CEO. “This initiative will improve patient access to quality surgical care and is a testament to our continuous growth and success.”
West Boca Medical Center’s services include a surgeon-controlled robotic surgery program that offers minimally invasive gynecological, urological and general procedures. Additionally, the hospital’s Outpatient Surgery Center specializes in surgical techniques that promote shorter recuperation periods.
