The newly renovated OR Control Room for the University of Kansas Health System Surgery Department is a bright, more spacious, up to date working space for the unit coordinators to work within. This 2,458 square foot project was completed in three phases including demolition and build back and included the enlargement of the decontamination room that is adjacent to the space.

The new control desk features an expansive entrance, sit-to-stand working desks, updated lighting and state-of-the-art technology. These updates were necessary to maintain the approximate 75 surgeries performed each day.

The OR Control Room opened after a ribbon cutting celebration on Monday, August 8.
