Boston Children’s Hospital’s new Hale Family Building, scheduled for certificate of occupancy in December 2021, will feature an innovative hybrid operating suite, featuring equipment and technology by IMRIS. That suite involves a trolley MRI, which rides a massive steel rail on the ceiling to travel between operating rooms and imaging spaces. This allows surgeons to scan patients with the highest quality imaging technology during operations, without adding time to close the operating area on a patient and transport the patient to another location for imaging. It helps to promote efficiencies in care delivery and minimize risks. Simply put, this hybrid operating suite and pediatric medical technology will help save lives. The challenge? Installing the steel that carries the MRI and outfitting three rooms with both surgical and imaging capabilities.
