OPERATING ROOMS: Planning tips for hybrid ORs

Here are some of the considerations / recommendations in planning a hybrid operating room, which integrates imaging equipment into the operating room, based on comments of a steering committee responsible for developing an exhibit at an upcoming national conference:

  • Physician champions are needed
  • Turf issues as far as who controls the hybrid OR must be worked out
  • It takes about a year in planning time
  • Multi-disciplinary hybrid OR steering committee should meet every 2 to 3 weeks
  • 1,200 sf should be adequate for the hybrid OR and the control room
  • The hybrid OR should be part of the surgical suite and close to blood bank
