Surgery at Pella Regional Health Center has been renovated to include an additional operating room. Pella Regional partnered with Stryker and Intuitive Surgical to design the larger operating room to be a fully integrated room for multiple types of robotic surgery, the first of its kind in Iowa.

Surgery Nurse Diane McCombs this expansion, which will be primarily used for robotic surgery, allows for better scheduling and flexibility for all of the surgical specialties who are providing care to patients. McCombs says with Pella Regional’s growth in surgical volumes, expansion to a fourth operating room became necessary.

“Well in the last couple of years our surgical volume growth, we were around 17 percent last year with the year before around 30 percent,” she says. “So what we found was we were needing more rooms to provide the quality of care for our patients in a timely manner.”

The equipment in the operating room communicates during surgical cases without the need for numerous wires, cords and other equipment. Across the country, Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare, a leading rehabilitation hospital and specialized healthcare service provider, was pleased to announce the opening of its new state-of-the-art Medical Surgical Wing.

Casa Colina’s three new spacious surgical suites are the highlight of the new addition, featuring the da Vinici® minimally invasive surgical system and Stryker MAKO robotic-arm-assisted surgery for orthopedics/total joint replacements. Ceiling-mounted booms hold surgical equipment, allowing staff to easily move and adjust devices during procedures, increasing accessibility and decreasing surgical time. Designed with six wall-mounted screens and two portable screens ranging from 42 inches to 52 inches, the surgical suites also allow the operating room team to display vital signs, radiological images, lab values, pertinent patient data, and images projected through endoscopic cameras. Ceiling-mounted and in-light cameras also allow the surgeons to use telemedicine to share procedures with other surgeons in real-time, allowing them to seek expert assistance from worldwide colleagues during complex procedures, if needed.

“Casa Colina is thrilled to announce the opening of its much-awaited Medical Surgical Wing,” said Felice L. Loverso, PhD., president and CEO of Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare. “For more than 75 years, Casa Colina has been highly regarded for its rehabilitation services, and we are proud of its recent ranking by Modern Healthcare as the 13th largest rehabilitation provider in the United States. With the new Medical Surgical Wing addition, Casa Colina will further meet its goals of providing the highest level of patient-centered medical and surgical care available anywhere in the region.”
