2020 PCHS Funding Needs
Operating Room Equipment
The operating suite was remodeled in 2017 as part of the hospital expansion and remodel. The remodeling project was crucial for the facility to provide the high-quality operating services needed by the patients in the area. When the remodel of the facility was undertaken, the operating suite was designed for maximum efficiency and patient care. However, some of the medical equipment was not upgraded at that time due to cost concerns.
Think about how quickly technology advances – now apply it to specialized equipment and
medical electronics in particular. At this time, advancements in surgical equipment and
sterilization upgrades would be considered one of the most important actions we can make at
PCHS to keep our patients and staff safe.
Operating Room Sterilization Equipment
Sterilizing devices and instruments is one of the first lines of defense against infection in surgical
patients and is essential for ensuring that medical and surgical instruments do not transmit
infectious pathogens to patients.
Hospitals require the use of large autoclaves, sterilizers and glassware/equipment washers that
can sterilize numerous surgical instruments and medical equipment at one time. The industrial
equipment is necessary to provide the needed sterilization in a single cycle, meeting the ongoing
demand for sterile equipment in operating rooms and emergency wards.
Patient Care Equipment
Updated equipment helps to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients and our staff.
