West Boca Medical Center is planning a $9.9 million project to modernize and expand its operating room capabilities.
The upgrades are expected to begin early next year and take 18 months to complete. The project includes a new operating room and the renovation and expansion of three of the five existing operating rooms. The beds in the post-anesthesia care unit will more than double from six to 14, and the unit will be remodeled.
Hospital officials said a goal of the project is to provide more spacious operating rooms to accommodate orthopedic, spinal and robotic surgeries. The addition of the sixth operating room will allow for more surgeries to be performed and provide more flexibility for surgeons to schedule cases.
West Boca Medical Center’s services include a surgeon-controlled robotic surgery program that offers minimally invasive gynecological, urological and general procedures.
The hospital’s Outpatient Surgery Center also specializes in surgical techniques that promote shorter recuperation periods. For more information on the surgical services offered at West Boca Medical Center, please visit www.westbocamedctr.com/our-services/surgery.
