Integrated Operative Suite
Interactive Operative Suites are located on the Summa Akron City and the Summa St. Thomas Hospital campuses. They offer the latest technologies in networked visual communications, telemedicine, videoconferencing, multimedia, distance marketing, and education systems. The Summa Akron City campus has two fully integrated operating room endosuites, which function in conjunction with the telemedicine center. The endosuite at Summa St. Thomas Hospital is adjacent to a glass observation area, allowing for video observation, and a “push to talk” audio/microphone system whereby participants can ask questions of the surgeon and staff during the procedure.
