CompView Medical Upgrades Two Operating Rooms at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula

Installation Marks Company's First Installation at Ambulatory Surgery Center

Beaverton, Ore. – (October 9, 2006) - CompView Medical, a leading provider of integrated audio-visual systems for healthcare environments, today announced the completion of two operating room upgrades at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula in Monterey, Calif. This marks the company’s first installation in an ambulatory surgery center and its first installation in the state of California.

In one day, CompView Medical installed two NuBOOMs, enabling the hospital to avoid disruption and maintain their busy OR schedule. The installation took place Sept.12, 2006 in operating rooms that previously housed tower solutions. Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula recently finished construction on a new critical care wing when they began investigating additional ceiling-mounted systems to update their outpatient surgery center. However, after looking at the construction costs and down time required for installing ceiling-mounted booms, the hospital turned to CompView Medical and NuBOOM.

"From the flexibility to the ergonomic aspects, the NuBOOM has been the best choice,” stated Mariano Catbagan, director of outpatient surgery. “NuBOOM provided an all-inclusive solution that was less expensive and could install in 2-3 days time, compared to the extensive reconstruction and 3 months of OR room downtime with the ceiling-mounted options.”

Completion of this project in one day confirmed the company’s efficiency of installation and continued success with minimal downtime, while simplifying the upgrade process. Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula significantly expedited their purchase, due to the minimal project planning and budget requirements.

“CompView Medical’s installations in Monterey are another example of why our NuBOOM and DOCS system are fast becoming the premier option for OR upgrades,” said Paul White, founder and president of CompView Medical. “The minimal interruption and subsequent improvement in efficiency, safety and surgeon comfort are exceeding expectations in every facility we have installed in.”

NuBOOM transforms outmoded general surgery operating rooms into modern MIS suites that improve patient and staff safety. For the surgeon, NuBOOM enhances physical, cognitive, and perceptive ergonomics during MIS operations. NuBOOM includes DOCS, the Digital Operating Control System, which provides visual connectivity to the patient’s surgical images and electronic records.

“The surgeons really like the multiplicity of the ancillary displays with the ability to view the surgical images and PACS documentation,” stated Catbagan. “We have eliminated all of our A/V towers from the floor, making it easier for the nursing circulators to move around. Turnovers are noticeably faster and transitions have become much more convenient."

CompView Medical entered into the MIS market in 2005 seizing as its opportunity the need to bring better ergonomics and MIS visualization technologies into the OR. NuBOOM and DOCS directly challenge industry standards on a number of levels. Installation of boom systems exceeded 30 days at a time and generally required some degree of remodeling, while NuBOOM installed in less than three days with no remodeling. NuBOOM delivers MIS suite capability at one fourth of the cost associated with upgrading OR suites with ceiling mounted booms because there is no requirement for overhead structural work.
