Sweden: New multidisciplinary Hybrid Operating Theatres
Siemens Healthcare and Sahlgrenska University Hospital have signed a contract for the delivery of four Hybrid Operating Theatres to the new Imaging center that Sahlgrenska is currently building. The medical technology equipment that will be delivered by Siemens Healthcare consists of a movable MRI (Magnet Resonance Imaging) system mounted on ceiling rails, and advanced angiography systems based on robotic technology. It is the first of its kind in Northern Europe. The installation will be in clinical use in 2016. The contract has an initial value of about 86 MSEK (about 9 MEUR).
The statements by Siemens´ customers presented here are based on results that were achieved in the customer´s unique setting. Since there is no "typical" hospital and many variables exist (e.g. hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption), there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
