Major financial group's hospital chain acquires seven operating theatres from the Inoroom alliance in Finland
Inoroom™ turnkey delivery includes everything expected from a state of the art operating theatre, from planning to installation and maintenance, i.e. clean room structures, integrated hospital and building management systems, smart controls, standard hygiene management, user friendly interfaces, training and maintenance.
”Our procurement team was impressed by the simplicity of placing an order, staff and patient convenience and the functionality of premises. We can, for instance, adjust ventilation by zones, still maintaining all hygiene standards. Due to multi-functionality, procedures with different cleanliness category can be performed in the same day”, head of the unit Nina Vesaniemi from Pohjola Sairaala Helsinki says.
”For property owners and service providers, accurate budgeting of the building and maintenance costs of hospitals is very important. Inoroom™ operating theatres meet this requirement”, development manager Kari Kangasmaa from OP Kiinteistösijoitus Oy says.
”The turnkey solution from Inoroom combines unique flexibility with hassle-free delivery, reliability and a fixed price. The benefits expand to all of the parties involved: the developer, designers, contractors, surgical teams and patients”, the development and sales manager of Inoroom Mikael Sokolnicki says.
The delivery of operating theatres to the hospitals in Oulu and Kuopio in Finland will be carried out in two phases. The framework of the hospitals is already under construction and the designing of operating theatres has begun. The first theatres will be ready next summer and the rest by autumn 2017.
