Boulcott Hospital, a small private hospital that has entered 21st century, i-suite operating technology...

Boulcott Hospital, a small private New Zealand hospital that has adopted 21st century, i-suite operating technology...

Boulcott Hospital in Lower Hutt, Wellington, New Zealand, is a great little modern hospital set up for a variety of operations that do not have to be done in one of New Zealand's larger state owned and operated hospitals.
I have personally been a patient at Boulcott Hospital on a couple of occasions for minor operations to my hand and knee. Both medical and post operative treatment were excellent. The hospital caters for private and ACC patients, and perhaps some other insured patients as well. This is not an advertising post, but some positive comments from a former patient who received excellent medical and treatment there.

Just imagine the news I read today about Boulcott Hospital:

A new operating theatre has been constructed and fitted out by medical technology company, STRYKER, who have built the first of these 21st century style operating theatres in the Wellington and central North Island region in New Zealand.

Lets discuss some of the comments made: A whole new way of looking at surgery; Clinicians no longer have to be in the same operating theatre or town - to view surgery carried out at the hospital, thanks to its cutting edge technology of its new i-suite-operating theatre; This allows surgeons and theatre teams to work in a more collaborative manner ...(because)everyone can see whats happening - Richard Grenfell.

Cameras inside operating lights and other equipment reportedly film operations, which are shown in real time on three screens inside the theatre.

It can also be broadcast to remote sites, such as seminar rooms or other hospitals, even in other towns; perhaps even in other countries too!

There is also much more room around the operating table, which allows surgeons and theatre teams to work in a more efficient and collaborative manner because everyone can see what is going on there.

Surgeons have headsets to communicate with the seminar room and can also access patient notes, X-rays and other information on touch-panel screens while working in the theatre.

The theatre reportedly cost about NZ$2 million dollars, part of a NZ$7 million dollar upgrade of Boulcott Hospital, which included new in-patient beds and a day- stay suite.

Dr Grenfell said that, unlike oldstyle operating theatres which are very cluttered with various monitors and cables, the state of the art i-suite used ceiling mounted booms to accomodate medical equipment and monitors. He also said surgeons had enthusiastically adopted the new technology and rated the i-suite operating theatre as their favourite theatre; it gave them the best view of surgery they have ever seen.
