Quincy (Ill.) Hospital Plans OR Expansion

Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Ill., has begun an $8.5 million OR expansion project.

Blessing is building two ORs. One will be a hybrid OR, the other a multipurpose OR. The expansion will add more than 1,600 square feet to the surgical services department.

While Blessing is building two ORs, it will gain only one additional room. An existing OR will be closed for storage as part of the project. After construction, Blessing will have a total of 10. 

A key feature of the hybrid OR is the latest, robotic imaging system, while the size of the multipurpose OR, compared to the nine current ORs in Blessing’s surgery department, will better meet the needs of trauma and orthopedic cases.
