Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. (September 28, 2016) – Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is planning a multi-million dollar project to improve the efficiency and technological capabilities of its operating room services. Construction will include the addition of four OR suites, as well as expanding to a 28-bed Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). The groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Oct. 18 from 4 to 6 p.m.
One goal of the project, which is expected to be completed in mid-2018, is to provide more spacious ORs to accommodate orthopedic, spinal and robotic surgeries. The additional OR suites will allow for more surgeries to be performed and provide more flexibility for surgeons to schedule cases.
“This initiative is designed to better accommodate the cutting-edge surgical procedures we offer here at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center,” said CEO Jeffrey M. Welch. “As our community grows, we are adapting to meet the increasing demand for top-notch health care. Through this expansion, our award-winning care will advance to the next level and improve the lives of more patients.”
Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center’s services include a surgeon-controlled robotic surgery program that offers minimally invasive gynecologic, prostate and colorectal procedures. Additionally, the hospital offers weight loss surgery, including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and adjustable gastric band procedures.
