Newswise — HACKENSACK, NJ – Hackensack University Medical Center’s 530,000-square-foot Helena Theurer Pavilion is now open — and this state-of-the-art, nine-story surgical and intensive care tower is raising the bar on patient care excellence in the New York metropolitan area. The Pavilion features all-private patient rooms and the latest “smart hospital” technology, with every detail optimized to deliver an outstanding patient experience.

“This is one of the largest hospital construction projects in the country and we could not be more proud to advance healthcare for the communities we are privileged to serve,’’ said Robert C. Garrett, CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health.. “This new smart hospital expansion is a great example of Hackensack Meridian Health building the health system of the future.’’

The Pavilion includes:

24 operating rooms
72 post-anesthesia care unit beds
50 Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds
175 medical/surgical beds, including a Musculoskeletal Institute and intermediate care rooms
6 da Vinci robotic surgical systems, including one single port system
4 orthopedic robots for joint replacement procedures
Specially Equipped Operating Rooms Promote Efficiency and Safety

Six of the Pavilion’s operating rooms are specially designed to accommodate robotic-assisted surgery systems, allowing nationally and internationally recognized surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures that may reduce recovery time and improve outcomes. The six-room robotic surgery “pod” is surrounded by a sub-sterile core, enabling team members to move between operating rooms while remaining inside the sterile environment, decreasing infection risk for patients and enhancing workflow.

Each robotic surgery operating room is equipped with video conferencing technology that gives pathologists a virtual view of the surgical field and the ability to interact with surgeons in real-time — translating to less time under anesthesia for patients, improved efficiency for surgeons and pathologists, and potentially, better overall surgical outcomes. The technology also gives students and colleagues the opportunity to view procedures and interact with surgeons performing pioneering robotic surgical procedures.

The Pavilion also includes New Jersey’s first intraoperative MRI system, which is used during neurosurgical and neuro-interventional procedures to help neurosurgeons accurately remove tumors and treat conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and more.
