State-of-the-art Hospital Theatre Completes

Posted by Sally on November 27, 2012

Our architectural team has completed a state-of-the-art integrated operating theatre at Homerton Hospital in Hackney.

‘Integrated’ means lots of HD cameras / video cameras and monitors that link back to the education centre’s lecture theatre at the hospital. Live images can be sent anywhere over the internet, to consultant surgeons' iPads, PCs etc. using the latest secure software. Dimmable lights were installed and one setting is with blue light this gives a far better clarity of images on the monitors.

It was created out of a former central sterile store so some of the design challenges included designing around a low ceiling and in a confined windowless space.

This theatre is part of a range of refurbishments Hunters has been carrying out at the hospital.
