March 25, 2022
Here are pictures of Phase 1 of Orlando Health’s Surgical Expansion project. This phase marks the end of 1 of 4 in total. The scope of work of the entire project involves the interior renovation of approximately 76,000 SF of the hospital’s 4th floor surgical suite. It accounts for 10 new operating rooms that include a hybrid OR with staff and patient support areas. Also included is the expansion of pre- and post-operative patient areas with 44 patient bays and private rooms. Second phase recovery bays are also combined in pre-op as are 36 bays and private rooms for PACU, a central physician’s / staff lounge and locker rooms, and renovated family waiting areas.
