Neurovascular and Cardiovascular Center – Methodist University Hospital

Employees of TRO Jung|Brannen’s Memphis office, now brg3s, completed the design for a Neuro Cath Lab “Show Place” as defined by Siemens in support of a strategic alignment between Methodist Health Care and The Semmes-Murphey Clinic. The project involved the creation of two new labs sharing connected control rooms. One lab is dedicated to neurological cases and includes a Siemens Artis Zee bi-plane unit. The other lab serves as a multi-functional lab for neurological and cardiovascular cases utilizing the Siemens Artis Zeego robotics imaging system.

Equipped with an ambient experience LED lighting system, patients can be distracted from the catheterization procedure by personally choosing a visual theme viewed on the LCD panels of the ceiling and colored lighting illuminates the walls. These innovative features create a comforting and calming atmosphere for the patient, which may reduce patient anxiety and also delivers a sense of control over their experience. Medical staff can also benefit from the features of the ambient experience with special diffuse lighting eliminating any shadows or reflections on monitors. This equal lighting distribution makes the room relaxing and soothing to a physician’s eyes.

The project is the first of its kind in the southeast and is designed for use as a teaching facility. Procedure rooms and the control room are oversized to accommodate groups of students.  The complex project construction had to be phased due to ongoing operations, yet was completed in seventy days.
