Frisbie Memorial Hospital Showcases Newly Renovated Operating Room Suite Following Devastating Flood

On Friday, May 19th, Frisbie Memorial Hospital invited city officials, including Mayor Paul Callaghan, and several other community members for an exclusive tour of its newly renovated operating room suite.

In February, Frisbie Memorial Hospital faced an unprecedented challenge when its operating rooms were flooded by burst pipes, triggered by record-low temperatures. Despite best efforts, the operating rooms suffered irreparable damage, rendering them a total loss. However, HCA Healthcare swiftly deployed skilled construction teams to the site, ensuring a rapid and efficient rebuilding process.

Frisbie successfully transitioned its surgical operations to its sister facility, Portsmouth Regional Hospital, with minimal disruption throughout the restoration. According to hospital representatives, Frisbie only missed one day of surgeries immediately following the flood.

 

Mayor Paul Callaghan said that he was “incredibly impressed” during the tour, stating “The newly renovated operating rooms are great for our residents. This experience shows how important it is to have a community hospital with contemporary operating rooms.”

The new state-of-the-art operating rooms boast cutting-edge technology and adhere to the highest standards of patient care and safety. Hospital representatives extend their sincere appreciation to the Rochester community for their resilience and understanding throughout the renovation.
