As Q-bital Healthcare Solutions expands across Europe and across Australia, we look at some of the business highlights from 2021, from our first facility in Sweden to the expansion of our modular services in Australia.
Operating Theatre Installed in Trollhättan
Q-bital has joined forces with Swedish distributor, Meditek, to deliver and install four bespoke and fully equipped surgical theatres to the Norra Älvsborg County Hospital in Trollhättan.
The facility has been installed as the emergency department of the hospital is closed for a period of refurbishment. This department was essential in delivering around 9,000 emergency operations annually and could not remain closed without an interim solution.
The facility includes four operating rooms and corresponding recovery rooms, two storage rooms, disinfection rooms and a corridor connecting the modules together. This is the second clinical infrastructure solution provided by Q-bital in Sweden, paving the way for future projects.
Flexible Capacity Added at Prince Charles Hospital, Australia
A dual-procedure theatre facility has been designed and installed by Q-bital at Prince Charles Hospital in Australia to assist in rising demands for additional clinical capacity. The fully-equipped endoscopy facility includes a decontamination suite and a mobile eight-bed recovery ward.
The facility is open 5 days a week and is projected to treat around 450-500 monthly colonoscopy patients across the two rooms. The use of modern methods of construction to speed up the process has enabled the hospital to quickly address capacity concerns, reducing the number of individuals waiting for routine endoscopy procedures.
The First mixed-modality solution in the UK
Through the introduction of modular facilities from Netherlands-based Young Medial, Q-bital was able to successfully deliver their first mixed-modality solution at Derriford hospital in Plymouth, UK.
The bespoke solution consisted of modular and mobile operating theatres and wards that were designed, built, and installed by Q-bital. Operating 5 days a week, the facility provides additional ophthalmological capacity for the hospital to carry out an additional 200 monthly procedures, allowing Derriford hospital to directly address the extensive elective care backlog.
Q-bital is looking to deliver similar bespoke solutions to healthcare providers across Europe in the coming year.
Healthcare-Spaces Newsletter Turns Two
The Q-bital newsletter, Healthcare Spaces, continued to publish content from researchers and clinical experts throughout 2021 and exists as a great platform to stay up to date with the latest industry news. From in depth-case studies to recruitment based pieces, the newsletter covers topics extending further than healthcare infrastructure and will serve as a crucial base of information over the coming year as the world recovers from Covid-19.
