Facility Innovations

Empowering physicians to participate in planning and design plays a significant role in the success of a medical facility. The physicians of Tulsa Spine & Specialty Hospital were committed to designing a facility that catered to the needs of patients and doctors. Attention to small details makes a big difference-such as inpatient rooms with separate staff hand washing areas in each room, larger procedure rooms, and immediate access to patient pickup and drop-off areas. Management contribution aided in the completion of a facility that is both pleasing to the patient, but efficient for physicians and other medical personnel. Planning for storage and daily work area use promotes a greater level of efficiency in all patient care areas. Large, single patient rooms with windows provide patients and their families comfortable surroundings, creating an overall pleasant experience This benefit, along with excellent patient outcomes, fosters pride and contributes to employee satisfaction.
