The Reading Hospital and Medical Center is a 711-bed non-profit teaching hospital located in the borough of West Reading, PA.
SSR managed the OR integration RFP and functionality requirements for the new speciality, hybrid, and robotic ORs, procedure rooms, and trauma bays. SSR also facilitated staff discovery (physicians, nurses, anesthesia, and others) to determine vision and functionality of the operating room environment; conducted mock surgeries with full staff engagement to educate and simulate new processes and integration of technology for the future; and created interdisciplinary teams to determine overall functionality and planning for the new operating room environment.
SSR also provided design, procurement, and project management for installation of the GetWell Network Patient Entertainment System; served as the owner’s representative to manage and define construction, clinical integration and functionality for the hospital; and managed and coordinated equipment delivery/procurement, installation, training, and testing. SSR provided consulting services to improve clinical utilization of the system and improve efficiencies and patient satisfaction.
In addition, SSR provided construction and project management services for the deployment and implementation of technology systems for the project, which included 24 ORs, six procedure rooms, and 160 patient rooms.
