Ardmac equips operating theatres at hospital in Cork

Includes ultra clean ventilation canopy to keep out micro-organisams

Interior contracting firm ardmac has completed fitting out two new ultraclean operating theatres for the Cardiac Renal Centre at Cork University Hospital in Ireland. The completion of the two theatres is said to be a major step in advancing the delivery of high quality cardiac care throughout the south-west of Ireland.

Ardmac had full responsibility for the HTM-03 environment, which required the integration and coordination of specialist equipment such as: UCV canopies; surgeons’ panel; surgeons’ lights; pendants and gases and an audio-visual system.

As part of the design process and in order to reduce the occurrence of micro-organisms in the operating rooms and, more specifically, in the wound site, ardmac selected an ultra clean ventilation canopy, from supply chain partner Howorth, as the best solution for the operating theatres.

“This facility is all about increasing the levels of patient care within the region, and we are delighted to have been involved in the project,” said Dermot McKenna, group technical manager for ardmac.

Ardmac, which has offices in Dublin in the Irish Republic and Craigavon in Northern Ireland, and in Manchester, UK, provides controlled environments for high performance hospital applications including CL3 biosafety labs, operating theatres, sterile pharmacy suites, IVF labs, stem cell labs and isolation wards.
