Shockey helped WVU Medicine expand its surgical capacity with the addition of five new cutting edge, full service operating rooms. Shockey also performed HVAC upgrades to 2 existing ORs as part of the renovation, and all finishes were upgraded in an existing corridor.
In order to accommodate the latest innovative technology, the new operating rooms at Berkeley Medical Center range from 600 to 921 square feet, making them much larger than traditional operating rooms.
Two of the new ORs support minimally invasive robotic technology called the da Vinci Intuitive Xi, which enhances the technical skills of the surgeons and allows patients to heal faster with fewer complications.
The expansion includes another new operating room dedicated to orthopedic surgical procedures, including anterior total hip replacement, and an OR dedicated to the integrated vascular thoracic Stryker iSuite.
The other new operating room is the neurosurgery iSuite that houses neurosurgical technology, including the Mazor X robot. Berkeley Medical Center is the first hospital in West Virginia to acquire the Mazor X to perform robotic spine surgery.
