Refurbishment success in seven surgical units

Please! No cables in our operating theatres

Refurbishment success in seven surgical units

Among refurbishments at seven operating theatres at Marien Hospital in Hamburg, Germany, are new PCs and wall-mounted monitors supplied by the Mönchengladbach-based medical IT manufacturer and developer of software and hardware Rein Medical GmbH.

‘It was important to find a supplier which specialised in hardware for the operating theatre and who could supply high-quality products,’ said Rolf Rathjen, Head of Medical Technology at the Marien Hospital in Hamburg. ‘In addition, the PCs and monitors should integrate into the walls very well – we didn’t want to see any cables in the operating theatre.’

Simultaneously, the hospital commissioned a different company to supply the OT integration software – not an unusual situation from Rein Medical’s point of view. ‘The special feature is the 4K UHD imaging: Our Operion three monitors are also available in UHD versions and are offered with various display diagonals,’ explained Roland Schleberger, Key Account Manager at Rein Medical who was responsible for this undertaking. ‘We are proud to have accomplished our first project with a 4K UHD display in Germany.’ In all, Rein Medical supplied two 27” Operion displays with PC for wall installation and one 55” Operion display (4K) each for each operating theatre. 

The company also provided a 24” Clinio PC with touch screen for the introduction. All monitors and PCs were installed on site by a team from Rein Medical, which is also responsible for training the Hamburg personnel. ‘We could rely on our partner at all times in the project, Rathjen happily concluded. ‘From our point of view, both coordination and delivery were perfect and always on schedule.’

Flawless live operation in under a year

Hamburg is highly satisfied with the progress. Since the end of 2019 the systems have run flawlessly in live operation in four completed theatres. ‘Rein Medical has impressed us with the quality of the PCs and monitors, and also with the professional execution of the project,’ Rathjen reiterated. ‘The co-operation, also with the other service providers we commissioned, was uncomplicated and problem-free.’ 

Currently, phase three construction is underway at Marien Hospital, covering the refurbishment and prefabrication of the last three operating theatres, in which Rein Medical is also responsible for the IT equipment, analogous to the already renovated and newly equipped operating theatres. ‘In future projects, too,’ emphasised Rolf Rathjen, Head of Medical Technology. ‘We will certainly be happy to return to the specialist knowledge and products of Rein Medical.’
