Lee Health expanded obstetrics OR set to open

By Staff | Sep 16, 2020

Last week, Lee Health’s newly renovated obstetrics operating room was set to open at HealthPark Medical Center. The grand opening marks the completion of the final phase of the OB service line expansion project. The overall expansion is a result of the health system’s commitment to better serve the community by creating a more personalized and comfortable experience for expectant families.

This phase of the expansion includes the addition of eight new pre- and post-op light-filled private rooms each with a bathroom, shower, sliding glass doors with privacy curtains and wood cabinets for patient belongings and patient supplies. High tech electronic computer boards provide staff members with up-to-the minute statuses on patient conditions, and the addition of a physician break room will enhance downtime for providers.

The newly designed space improves staff workflows and fosters collaboration while caring for individual patients.

Last year, the health system expanded obstetrical services at HealthPark Medical Center to feature 107 OB beds, all of which are fully private and include family sleep capabilities, and also expanded the OB Emergency Department and OB triage located in HealthPark’s emergency department from three to seven beds. The expansion also helped meet several other goals of Lee Health’s OB service line.
