Interventional Radiation and New Ambulatory Surgery Suites
The renovation of the Ambulatory Surgery Suite at Griffin Hospital was the final implementation of a multi-phase master plan.
The new Ambulatory Surgery Suite, Interventional Radiology Suite and East Lobby offer the hospital’s patients a welcoming environment, while providing operational efficiency for staff through combined prep and recovery areas for Interventional Radiology services, as well as traditional inpatient and outpatient surgeries. These renovated spaces also support and expand core components of the Planetree Model of Person-Centered Care a part of Griffin Hospital’s institutional identity since 1994.
The 11,000-SF Ambulatory Surgery Suite features 18 recovery bays with two fully private rooms and upgrades to the OR Suite, recovery area, waiting area, and reception. The flexible person-centered design includes decorative walls and ceilings, natural skylights to supplement indirect lighting, a fireplace, private nooks for seating, and a stone tile accent wall with an integrated virtual window display. Finishes that incorporate natural stones, warm wood tones, organic patterns, reflective tiles, and colors reminiscent of the outdoors provide patients with a calm and peaceful environment.
The new facility provides a positive and welcoming first impression for Griffin’s clinical space, as well as supporting a number of medical specialties and services that include eye surgery, bariatrics, orthopedics, and interventional radiology.
