With the move on Sept. 14 to the UC Davis Medical Center's new Surgical and Emergency Services Pavilion, surgery patients gained the convenience of one-stop check-in, beautifully appointed waiting areas, a well-lighted atrium and a nearby cafeteria.
“There's a sense of openness and light throughout the building. It was definitely designed with a patient-care focus,” said Philip Schneider, director of Perioperative Services at UC Davis.
While the move does not mean more operating rooms, it does mean much larger, standard-shaped rooms that can easily accommodate all equipment required for highly complex surgeries — from bariatric to burn, and from cardiothoracic to cancer. The previous facilities represent decades of a “make it happen now” approach to growth that was necessary to accommodate increasing patient volume within existing walls. As a result, surgery facilities spanned three distinct locations in the hospital, and the rooms were often irregularly shaped or simply too small to accommodate technologies required to support certain cases. In the new surgery suites, all essential supporting services are consistent and consolidated.
“The ease of logistics in the new building offers much greater efficiencies in scheduling and overall operations,” says Schneider.
One example of those efficiencies is in Central Processing, which provides surgical teams with sterilized operating instruments. In the new Pavilion, the unit is co-located with Surgery and has elevators with direct access to operating rooms, rather than delivering instruments throughout the hospital.
