Operating theaters in place in Karlskoga
On Wednesday, completely according to plan, the first four modular operating theatres were loaded to be transported to Karlskoga, where they will be docked next to the new A&E entrance at Karlskoga Hospital (client: Region Örebro County). Assembly took place on Thursday and Friday in late October, after which the surgery unit was completed externally and internally on site in Karlskoga. The surgery unit will be ready for full use in December 2015 to ensure that surgical services can be provided during the hospital’s renovation and expansion project. Afterwards, the modules will be dismantled and the operating theatres will be moved to a different site. The 28-tonne, fully equipped modules are transported on custom-built, 13.35 m-long low-bed trailers.
