When the Medical College of Pennsylvania, a member of the Tenet Healthcare Corporation remodeled its operating room (OR) suite, it incorporated a Spacesaver mobile system in the sterile supply room to free up space for operating room expansions. The designer worked with the OR staff to redesign the area and, in the process, made changes to the sterile supplies and sterile processing areas to make them more prolific and space efficient.
A Spacesaver mechanical assist mobile system, which was purchased under the Tenet Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), was designed into a small room. Located in a central location in the OR suite, supplies are now conveniently located close to where they are needed.
“Without the mobile system, we would never have been able to have fit everything in the OR area and still achieve our other remodel goals,” stated Lisa Czyzewski, OR director.
