STERIS Corp. and Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. have teamed to develop advanced vascular, cardiovascular, pediatric and neurosurgical hybrid surgical suites.
Toshiba will provide tableside digital information and imaging technologies, and Mentor, Ohio-based STERIS will deliver custom-designed high-definition integrated surgical suites featuring LED surgical lighting and visualization systems, as well as equipment management solutions. In addition, STERIS will use its room design services, including its 3-D Room Builder software.
“We recognize the great interest our clinical partners have in advancing care through surgical innovation and improved efficiencies and outcomes,” commented Robert Popilock, senior market development manager, STERIS Surgical Solutions. “Hybrid operating rooms offer tremendous opportunities to advance care, but designing and building these complex rooms is a huge task. Challenges such as how to eliminate collision points for equipment, optimize circulator pathways and provide ergonomic and intuitive tools at the surgical field, must be addressed."
Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit at Toshiba said his company is "committed to developing the most efficient and innovative technology in the industry, while improving patient care and making exams safer."
Aligning with strategic partners such as steris STERIS Toshiba will be able to offer advanced hybrid labs to meet the needs of large hospitals and healthcare networks by treating patients with interventional and surgical procedures all in one suite," Bumb said.
With headquarters in Tustin, Calif., Toshiba America Medical Systems markets, sells, distributes and services diagnostic imaging systems, and coordinates clinical diagnostic imaging research for all modalities in the United States.
