Steris, Toshiba Partner on Hybrid Operating Rooms

December 13, 2011 – Steris and Toshiba America Medical Systems formed an alliance to offer advanced vascular, cardiovascular, pediatric and neurosurgical hybrid surgical suites to healthcare systems seeking the latest patient-focused interventions.

These highly advanced suites will blend the contributions of both medical device leaders. Toshiba will provide tableside digital information and imaging technologies. Steris will deliver custom-designed high-definition integrated surgical suites featuring LED surgical lighting and visualization systems, and Harmony iQ advanced integration and operating room (OR) equipment management solutions. In addition, Steris’ expert room design services, including its 3-D Room Builder software and project management expertise, will allow the two companies to design and seamlessly integrate their technologies for their joint customers. The resulting Steris/Toshiba hybrid suites will enable surgical and diagnostic teams to carry out a vast range of image-guided cardiovascular, vascular and neurosurgical interventional procedures as well as open surgeries.

“We recognize the great interest our clinical partners have in advancing care through surgical innovation and improved efficiencies and outcomes,” said Robert Popilock, senior market development manager, Steris. “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.”
