Expect the Unexpected

More than medicine.


Technology that outpaces

Our state-of-the-art hospital will provide the newest and most advanced equipment and integrated technologies in the region. The design allows us to anticipate the future of medical innovations and upgrade technology from floor to ceiling as new advances are invented.


Robotic Precision Surgery

With the da Vinci XI Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci XI system features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. As a result, da Vinci enables our surgeons to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.

Electromagnetic Navigation

The use of superDimension technology in our new Electromagnetic Navigation Bronschoscopyy (ENB) detects possible cancer lesions with the lung. The benefits to patients include less hospital time, fewer complications and most importantly, early detection.

Pinpoint Imaging

The new imaging technology at St. Elizabeth's is greatly beneficial in early detection and disease diagnosis while improving safety for patients. The CT machine has the equivalency of 150 chest x-rays compared to standard equipment with equivalency of 450. This reduces radiation amounts by an average of 60 percent for patients. We are also one of the first hospitals in the region to have 3D biopsy equipment, similar to our 3D mammography, which allows us to pinpoint micro-calcifications in breast tissue.

Next Generation Operating Rooms

At the center of St. Elizabeth's technological advancements is our Hybrid Operating Room, which is a surgical theatre equipped with technologically advanced imaging equipment used in high-intensity procedures, such as neuro surgeries, vascular procedures and everything in between.

These imaging devices also enable minimally-invasive procedures which require imaging techniques that can visualize smaller body parts such as thin vessels in the heart muscle. Utilizing our Hybrid OR directly impacts patient safety because everything can occur in one room - emergencies or complications can be handled in one spot without putting a patient's safety at risk to move to another operating room.

Computerized Integrated Surgery

Our new hospital features Computerized Integrated Surgery, which is a sophisticated platform that allows physicians to remotely connect through telesurgical technology to specialized physicians during surgery for consults, assistance and education. This critical technology can be life saving. Imagine going into a routine heart catheterization and then an unexpected mass is found. The in-house surgical team can telecommunicate in real time through the in-light camera to a specialist to address the issue at that moment, saving time and eliminating the need for additional surgeries.

This technology allows physicians to actually record the surgery and images to teach other surgeons, or to educate patients and families.
