Covenant Medical Center just wrapped up a $7.7 million renovation of its surgical services area that will benefit surgeons and the patients they care for. The 18 month long project resulted in two new operating rooms and a renovated post-anesthesia care unit, as well as a reconstructed locker room, break room, control desk and nurses’ station.
“The new operating rooms are bigger than any others currently at Covenant, measuring 725 square feet,” said Shelly Burton, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare - Iowa Director of Surgical Services. “These rooms are necessary for our surgeons to perform large scale surgical procedures. They can also accommodate our da Vinci® robotic equipment as needed. The rooms include state-of-the art equipment, some of which was purchased with funds raised by the Covenant Foundation.”
