WITH THE INDUSTRY’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE INSTALLATION SOLUTION.

We’ve streamlined the construction experience – consolidating everything from rigging & installation to program management.

With comprehensive program management, we handle the countless variables that emerge when installing high-tech equipment into a medical environment.

We support the general contractor, minimizing errors. We stay in close contact with the hospital, reducing interruption. And, as we configure technologies according to your site’s design, we provide the level of precision our stakeholders expect.

STORIES FROM THE THEATRE

“Elevating the Installation Experience.”

The Challenge

How do you get an 8-ton magnet, along with the steel infrastructure to support it, into the upper floor of a hospital?

We recently constructed a hybrid IMRIS Surgical Theatre at Tiantan Hospital in Beijing, China. It included the “movable” iMRI system, one of IMRIS’ core innovations, and installing it required some creative solutions. Fortunately, that’s where we excel.

The Solution

Working closely with the hospital staff, we temporarily removed some of the building’s large windows, and then used a series of cranes to carefully lift the infrastructural components into the Theatre space.

Installing a surgical theatre is a logistical challenge like no other… especially when you’re working with innovative technology, things that have no precedent. You can’t treat it like a traditional construction project, because there’s nothing traditional about it. You have to have a Program Manager maintaining constant contact with all the stakeholders, especially hospital staff, through every stage of the process. It’s not enough to control what’s happening in your area of construction; the hospital is very active around you, and you have to be mindful of those variables and prepared to adapt.

With comprehensive program management and a solid line of communication, IMRIS is uniquely equipped to tackle the many challenges that emerge during the ‘Creation’ process.

Timeline:

FROM INITIAL PLANNING TO THE FIRST SURGICAL PROCEDURE AND BEYOND.

Phase I: Planning

  • Project launch
  • Technical requirement drawings
  • Final structural review
  • Infrastructure drawings
  • Final architectural design, review and sign-off

Phase II: Execution

  • Demolition and/or structural modification
  • System installation

Phase III: Commissioning

  • System testing
  • Training
  • Handover

MAINTAINING A CLEAR

POINT-OF-CONTACT.

We start by connecting our program manager with hospital staff and other stakeholders. Responsible for coordinating every phase of the project, the program manager will maintain constant communication with the client.

DEVELOPING YOUR

Hospital-specific strategy.

Your hospital is unique – in terms of design, structure and, as a result, construction needs. Our strategy is customized to meet those needs. Beginning with the planning phase, we tailor every component of the construction process to maximize efficiency and minimize interruption.

First, we create a detailed plan that matches your schedule. Then, when it’s time for execution, we work with the hospital to determine optimal access routes and overcome emergent challenges.

ENGAGING WITH THE

CLINICAL EDUCATION TEAM.

Our Clinical Education Team is embedded in the Creation process more than a year before installation is complete. During that time, they craft an education program specific to your surgical environment. By the time it’s installed, both our Clinical Education Team and your clinical staff are deeply familiar with the nuances of the hybrid IMRIS Surgical Theatre. That’s critical to migrating workflow and maximizing the value of the system.
