New operating theatre at Ryde Hospital

According to the April edition of RNS Ryde news, it has been a busy fortnight at Ryde Hospital with the final testings and inspections of the newly completed integrated theatre suite.

During the next couple of weeks commissioning will be underway. This will include staff being trained on the new equipment for the theatre, theatre schedules reviewed andan orientation for staff on how to access the new theatre and transport patients.

The new theatre is larger than average allowing surgical staff at Ryde Hospital to improve their quality of care and efficiencies in orthopaedic and colorectal procedures.

The first patients should be treated by the end of April. The works are part of a $5 million State Government funding allocation to Ryde Hospital.
