“Every building deserves the maximum amount of artistic exploration with a considered, deliberate approach. We seek to create spaces which impart feelings that you’re a participant in something exceptional, where function leads to calm, awe or inspiration. Our core values strive to convey that quality in every project we touch, from the modest to the extravagant.” ~Fredrick Franko, Director of Design
To design the upgrade and expansion of the surgical suite at Albany Medical Center.
As part of an ongoing state-of-the-art upgrade to the surgical suites at Albany Medical Center, the C Basement Operating Rooms were gut renovated and expanded to meet the demands of latest procedures, technologies, and patient care models. Six orthopedic ORs, three general ORs, four pediatric ORs, and two procedure rooms were created. Each surgical room contains a multiple ceiling mounted boom housing gases and monitors to maximize access to the technologies for flexibility. Surgical rooms have direct supply access from an adjacent sterile core space. The associated 22 bed PACU included 10 adult beds, 11 pediatric beds, and an isolation room. Support areas include pathology, anesthesia workroom, pharmacy, scheduling, staff spaces, bio-med, and general support areas such as soiled holding, clean holding, and housekeeping.
