Louisville, Ky. - Jewish Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, hosted an open house and media tour Monday to unveil its new hybrid operating room (OR).
The hybrid OR was funded by gifts to the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's Foundation, also part of KentuckyOne Health.
A hybrid operating room combines a full traditional operating room with an angiographic system enabling high-end imaging during endovascular procedures and other procedures. The room is equipped with one of the newest robot supported imaging systems.
Procedures are performed in close collaboration between cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons and cardiologists to ensure the optimal outcome for the patient.
