The new operating room for AdventHealth Palm Coast represents an $850,000 investment.
AdventHealth adds new OR
AdventHealth Palm Coast has begun a nearly $850,000 construction project to build a seventh operating room inside the surgical services department.
In 2018, surgeons at AdventHealth Palm Coast performed nearly 10,000 surgical procedures.
“We’ve outgrown our current space. All six of our operating rooms are used by our surgeons at 100% capacity for scheduled procedures,” said Lauretta Kiniery, director of surgical services at AdventHealth Palm Coast.
To accommodate the emergency procedures, Kiniery explained that scheduled surgeries are sometimes delayed until the emergency surgery is completed. The new operating room will “ decompress the scheduling struggles we have now,” she said.
Construction is expected to be completed in January.
