The expanded Riverwood Healthcare Center in Aitkin, Minnesota will allow for an increased volume of patients and provide additional staff spaces to accommodate the region’s growing need.
The surgical department is doubling its capacity from 3 to 6 operating rooms, adding prep/recovery rooms which include two 23.5 hour rooms with private bath, and two additional procedure rooms. One of the six operating rooms will be a hybrid model, allowing for imaging to be performed real-time during the surgical procedure. A separate exit within the surgery area allows for patients to leave after their procedure privately.
The addition of several staff spaces include men’s and women’s locker rooms, surgeons lounge, staff lounge with full kitchen, staff “living room” off the kitchen, meeting room, staff sleeping room with automatic drop down door gasketing to block out light and sound, and a mother’s room with attached ante room.
