Hospital to unveil new $1.9 million operating rooms

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Singing River Health System (SRHS) will celebrate the addition of two new operating rooms at Ocean Springs Hospital with a ribbon-cutting and open house on Thursday, June 17 at 2 PM.

The $1.9 Million state-of-the-art suites are the first of their kind on the Mississippi coast and will allow SRHS to meet the growing surgery needs of the community. It will increase the capacity from eight general surgery rooms to 10.

The operating rooms feature fully integrated booms which allow technology to be transferred to and from all monitors and high-definition flat panel display screens in the rooms. A specialized ventilation system ensures sterile airflow around the patient during surgery, and the generous square-footage of the space improves efficiency.

During the open house, one of the two operating rooms will be set up as though ready for surgery, with a life-like training mannequin on the operating table beneath illuminated surgical lights.
