Wheatley Stewart Medical Pavilion
MCH is now offering many of its outpatient services in the new building. Spurred on by advancing technology, computerization, high tech digital imaging and advanced surgical techniques, this state-of-the-art outpatient surgical, endoscopy, imaging, and medical office environment was developed to allow for smooth patient flow in a pleasant friendly atmosphere. It is the only hospital-based dedicated outpatient facility of its kind in the region.
The Pavilion’s outpatient surgery area offers four new operating rooms with flat-screen technology for sharp-image presentation, advanced camera technology, touch-screen control for the operation and monitoring of all components from one screen, and digital documentation. The endoscopy/bronchoscopy suite includes four new rooms that also benefit from some of the same advances in technology.
The outpatient imaging department in the Pavilion offers MRI, CT and ultrasound, providing convenient access to these services without entering the main hospital. The imaging equipment includes a Siemens Avanto MRI, offering a dramatic decrease in noise levels and a quantum increase in image quality, and a Siemens Sensation 16 CT scanner, capable of imaging the entire chest, abdomen and pelvis in a single breath.
Also in the new Pavilion is Pre-Op Express, a convenient one-stop shop for all pre-procedure testing including lab work, x-rays, and EKGs. Adjacent to the facility is a covered parking garage with over 300 spaces for patients, visitors, and physicians. The first floor of the garage is designed to accommodate patients as a triage area in the event of a mass casualty situation.
In addition to outpatient surgery and imaging, the 80,000 sq. ft. building includes two floors of leased physician office space, conference/education room space, and a full service Starbucks© for patient, visitor, and staff convenience.
