OT5 Operating Theatre at Matilda Hospital raises the bar in HK’s healthcare

When I was in Hong Kong recently, I made a point to watch for healthcare developments.  Here’s one example of a leading-edge hospital innovation.

Surrounded by blue glass panel walls with touch-screen TVs hanging down from the ceiling and coupled with all the innovative lighting shining on the squeaky clean floor, this OR could easily be mistaken for a film set on a sci-fi spaceship.

Recently launched by the Matilda International Hospital in Hong Kong, the OT5 offers a glimpse into the future of surgery with fully integrated information systems and equipment controls from a central panel.

Not only is the non-profit hospital situated atop the highest point in Hong Kong (Victoria Peak), its also positioned at the top of investments for the future.  This HK$10 million OR is key to meeting increased demands for musculoskeletal and minimal invasive surgery for years to come.
