VARIOP: Modular Operating Room System
Put into service in September 2008, Spartanburg Regional’s new surgical suites are unlike any currently in the United States.
The highly sanitary, stainless steel walls are designed to be reconfigured easily to better serve patients as technology continues to advance. It includes doors, ceilings, X-ray viewing screens, medical gas supply outlets, electrical control panels, video cameras, large screens, and numerous options and specifications.
The smallest VARIOP is larger than the previously largest operating room at Spartanburg Regional. These larger rooms are required to accommodate new technology used in surgery.
Already proven and popular throughout Europe, this is the newest form of operating rooms in the world, and Spartanburg Regional currently leads the nation in their implementation in North America. The modular operating system, called VARIOP, is manufactured by MAQUET in Germany.
