Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center is located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It is affiliated with UTSW Medical School and offers extensive clinical services through a network of affiliated hospitals, hospital-based clinics, and clinical practices providing comprehensive diagnostic services and therapies. The medical center currently consists of two university hospitals (415 beds), 24 inpatient operating rooms (ORs), a nine-suite endoscopy lab spread between inpatient and outpatient settings, and an outpatient building with seven ORs. The New University Hospital (NUH) is planned for 24 inpatient ORs on two separate floors. Each of the two floors includes an admitting area, day surgery, and post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) with the ability to flex patient placement that is driven by acuity and clinical requirements. A pre-surgery testing unit on the main OR level will provide patient assessment for both surgical floors. The main OR has 16 operating rooms, six endoscopy suites, the main pharmacy, and biomedical engineering. The cardiovascular thoracic OR includes eight ORs for thoracic, cardiovascular, vascular, and endovascular procedures, plus interventional radiology, cath lab, and pulmonary lab. In the planning for the NUH, the goal was to develop a landmark academic medical facility defined by the seamless integration of best-in-class patient care, clinical research, and education. The programmatic, schematic, and design development was on an aggressive timeline, December 2009 to completion August 2010. The planning committee included employees, faculty, allied health professionals, and administration.
