FREMONT-RIDEOUT HEALTH GROUP ANNOUNCES UPGRADES AND IMPROVEMENTS AT RIDEOUT MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

Rideout Health Group (FRHG) today announced that it is nearing completion of three critical improvement projects at Rideout Memorial Hospital (RMH). The projects include updating, expanding, and renovating two of the hospital's six operating rooms, enlarging and redesigning the laboratory, and extending and renovating the pharmacy.

                A team of physicians, surgeons, and cardiologists from FRHG visited two leading hospitals in Washington to examine new operating room technologies and equipment before submitting their recommendations. In addition, dozens of outside contractors and vendors contributed to the three projects.

                Endosuites three and four have been outfitted with new surgical lights and other equipment, including flat panel video monitors, anesthesia terminals, and surgical tables. These improvements will make the operating rooms more efficient and comfortable to work in. At the same time, the state-of-the-art lights and the modular design of the surgical tables will improve equipment flexibility and functionality.

                The two surgical theaters were also remodeled to improve efficiency and meet current infection control requirements to ensure a sterile and safe environment for patients and staff. The renovations, which totaled more than $1 million, were completed in December 2009.

                The laboratory upgrade encompasses new equipment and a revamped layout that enhances the processing capacity and efficiency of lab operations. A significant portion of the multi-phase project brings the facility into compliance with current fire and life safety codes and infection control regulations. Construction is scheduled to be completed in January, 2010.

                Alterations to the pharmacy enlarged it by approximately 150 square feet, to a total of 1,800 square feet, improving work-flow and organization. The remodel also included the addition of an updated sterile compounding and clean room to better protect both patients and staff when handling pharmaceutical products.

Maintaining and upgrading facilities and equipment is essential to the provision of high-quality health care to the community . These state-of-the-art equipment upgrades and remodeling improvements to the operating rooms, laboratory, and pharmacy at Rideout Memorial Hospital give surgeons and medical professionals the latest and greatest tools to work with. These enhancements allow them to do their best work in a more comfortable work environment. That translates to better health care services for patients of FRHG.
