United States : SPARROW HEALTH SYSTEM launches new surgical center.

Sparrow Health System has launched its surgical center in a $15 million expansion at Sparrow Hospital.

The renovated center consists of 10 new operating rooms at the hospital's main campus in Lansing. It has more than double size of the hospital's previous surgical area. The new center has space-saving equipment, touch-screen monitors and floors designed to reduce fatigue. It also includes the hospital's first frozen specimen lab.

"Big is the operative word for the new surgical suites", commented Ara Pridjian, medical director for cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Sparrow. Pridjian stated While the older rooms were a very, very tight squeeze, the new ones are like a venue for a wedding or Mission Control in Houston."

According to the Sparrow officials, more remodelling will see in phases, including new pre- and post-surgical facilities and a post-anesthesia care unit.
