Edward and Cindy Potter Support New Hybrid Operating Room
Successful fundraising initiatives and the generosity of donors provided $4.2 million in funding for a new state-of-the-art hybrid operating room at St. Luke's. This advancement in medical care allows surgeons to treat patients with complex medical conditions using new procedures that combine minimally invasive techniques with traditional surgical care, providing much lower risk to patients and faster recoveries.
The $4.2 million project included construction of the innovative operating room and a specialized angiography system. This high-tech imaging equipment helps physicians see the inside of organs and blood vessels and provides real-time, moving, three dimensional images from all angles. It also produces optimal imaging quality with lower doses of radiation, an important safety benefit for both patient and surgeon.
