Ascension Columbia St. Mary's Hybrid OR

Expanding specialized care services to meet increased surgical needs

As the leading healthcare provider along Milwaukee’s lakefront; Ascension believes in providing the best care possible to their patients. To satisfy a growing need for advanced patient care and as part of a larger strategic master plan, Ascension hired EUA to help expand their heart and vascular services by increasing their OR space. The new Hybrid OR focuses on providing improved heart and vascular services to their patients. To incorporate this new room adjacent to existing operational OR’s the team established a phased construction plan that also incorporated relocations of surgery storage, anesthesia work room, perfusion staging and Philips imaging equipment room.

To help visualize this custom surgery space, the design team created a physical mock-up room to show where equipment and materials would be configured in the space. The design of this space required a high level of coordination with staff, engineering team and the multiple product vendors to make sure it met the needs from a both a service-delivery perspective and also the patient experience.
