A 9,250SF neuro-surgery suite including an IMRIS intraoperative MRI. The first of its kind in the southeast, the IMRI is a highly technical imaging machine that required significant coordination with Steris, MEP, Hospital Facilities, and other consultants. The IMRI allows physicians to perform an MRI during surgery to confirm clean margins prior to closing up. The project scope included all required spaces for a stand-alone OR suite including a dedicated pre-op, PACU, physician lounge, lockers, and showers, equipment storage, clean and soiled supply, medication alcove, and dedicated central sterile and decontamination rooms. The suite has two dedicated ORs and one Diagnostic room that can all utilize the ceiling-mounted IMRI machine during surgical procedures.
