New operating theatre at Southern Cross Hospital, Invercargill

On Friday I had the pleasure of attending the formal opening of the new operating theatre (theatre 3) at Southern Cross Hospital, Invercargill.  This is a state of the art facility and includes a military grade, high definition, Black Diamond video system, the first of its kind in New Zealand.

This new operating theatre underscores Southern Cross Hospital’s commitment to advanced laparoscopic surgery including weight loss surgery.  Advanced laparoscopic surgery is very dependant on having technology which is of very high quality as well as very reliable.  This new operating theatre will help us to do more, and to do it more safely at the same time.
