To the satisfaction of doctors and patients alike, surgeries are now underway in the new outpatient surgery facility located in the Athens-Limestone Tower on Highway 72 East in Athens. The patient-friendly design is especially a hit. “Our new outpatient surgery facility is the first of its kind in Alabama to offer this level of technology in its operating suites,” says Jamie Page, Surgical Services Clinical Manager. “We have equipped all of our surgery suites with state-of-the-art Olympus EasySuite Patient Greeting Systems,” says Jamie. “Its library of soothing music and videos helps establish a calm environment for patient entry. During the case the nurse has control of the room’s integration with a single 22” touch panel. This easy to use technology (EasySuite) allows the nurse to focus on the patient. The patient experience ends with surgical images and video saved into an Enterprise Wide Virtual Server (VaultStream) to provide a continuum of care throughout the Athens-Limestone Health system.
