To the satisfaction of doctors and patients alike, surgeries are now underway in the outpatient surgery facility located in the Athens-Limestone Tower on Highway 72 East in Athens. The patient-friendly design is especially a hit. “Our outpatient surgery facility is the first of its kind in Alabama to offer this level of technology in its operating suites,” says Jamie Page, Surgical Services Clinical Manager. “We have equipped all of our surgery suites with state-of-the-art Olympus EasySuite Patient Greeting Systems,” says Jamie. “Its library of soothing music and videos helps establish a calm environment for patient entry. During the case the nurse has control of the room’s integration with a single 22” touch panel. This easy to use technology (EasySuite) allows the nurse to focus on the patient. The patient experience ends with surgical images and video saved into an Enterprise Wide Virtual Server (VaultStream) to provide a continuum of care throughout the Athens-Limestone Health system.
"I'm very excited about the hospital's outpatient surgery facility,” says Dr. Rayburn. “The flow of the patient's care has been streamlined, which should reduce our patients' waiting times, while still providing the highest quality of care. The operating suites are very spacious and have the latest surgical equipment."
“The surgery facility is state-of-the-art,” says Dr. Patrick Boyett. “It has the highest level of technology for arthroscopy and sports medicine in the Tennessee Valley.” The facility has gone through several years of planning and preparation with direct involvement with the orthopedic surgeons of TOC-Athens. The facility has four fully equipped operating suites with opportunity for expansion into an additional four suites and even overnight stay options for the future.”
