A state of the art Modernized Operating Room, NICU, Ramp has been blessed and opened today, April 10, 2018 at the 6th Floor of the Annex Building, Mary Mediatrix Medical Center JP Laurel Highway, Lipa City, Batangas. Mary Mediatrix Medical Center decided to build a new Operating Room to meet the increasing demand of surgical care here in Batangas Province and neighbouring municipalities and cities. The old five operating rooms which were state of the art way back 1995 when it was built are now replaced with state of the art 7 Operating Theaters. These Operating theaters contain state of the art equipments which can handle even Kidney Transplant, Minimally Invasive Surgery. Operating Rooms are also equipped with Camera Ready Operating Lights which in the future can be use in teleconference and live stream within the hospital vicinity or even online.
Some more upgrades of the New Operating Room are the distinction of Sub-Sterile and Sterile Area and well define flow of patients and doctors. There are also Ordinary Labor Rooms and High Risks Labor Room. High Risks Labor Rooms are for situations wherein the patient can’t be moved to the operating room due to some instances, and then the doctor can proceed on doing the operation on the same room.
Mary Mediatrix Medical Center also plans to get Multi Disciplinary Microscope that can handle Micro Vascular Surgery, Vascular Neuro Surgery, ENT and the likes. An 8 bed recovery room with complete monitoring system is also inside the OR Complex.
Batangenyos will now not need to go to Manila to have their surgeries because it’s already available in Lipa. That means lower expenses and easy access especially to relatives who wanted to visit the patient. Mary Mediatrix Medical Center committed to make the rates lower than the rates in Manila but will never be lower in terms or technical expertise and quality of services they provide.
