Mease Dunedin expands surgical center | Health
Dunedin, Florida -- Mease Dunedin Hospital unveiled its new surgical center operating suites Tuesday, June 19. The three suites are more than double the size of previous operating rooms and feature large HD monitors and cameras within surgical lights to view procedures.
“We are so glad to have the opportunity for our hospital expand over the last couple of years to better serve our community and offer a facility that focuses on patient-centered care,” said Lou Galdieri, chief operating officer at Mease Dunedin Hospital, in a release. “We are celebrating 75 years of being part of the Dunedin community this year and our expansion is part of our commitment to continue to provide quality health care for years to come.”
The latest renovations of the hospital’s surgical center also include a new pre-operative holding unit, a new operating room control desk and an anesthesia office and conference center. A fourth operating suite, endoscopy suite, new post-anesthesia care unit, an anesthesia room and new staff and physician lounge are scheduled to open by end of November.
The new surgical operating suites are part of a $19 million ongoing multi-phase expansion project that began in 2008, renovating 33,000 square feet of the hospital’s main building and adding 4,000 square feet of new construction.
