State Of The Art Theatre Suite Opens On Ulster Hospital Site

22nd June 2021

An additional new state of the art operating theatre suite situated in the Regional Plastic Surgery Unit has opened in the Critical Care Complex at the Ulster Hospital.  This new operating theatre along with recovery area, two consultation rooms, minor operations theatre, and procedure room will primarily be used for the Regional Plastic Surgery Service which will enhance the patient experience.

Patients from across Northern Ireland will attend for local and general anaesthetic trauma surgery and cancer surgery which requires the expertise of our dedicated multidisciplinary team including Plastic Surgeons, Anaesthetists, Nurses, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists.

Commenting on the opening of the new theatre, Maggie Parks, Assistant Director, Surgery said  “This new theatre suite further enhances the exceptional facilities available on the Ulster Hospital site for patients across the region who require Plastic Trauma Services and Cancer Surgery by allowing the service to maximise efficiency and productivity. It will add to the existing compliment of seven inpatient operating theatres, four complex day surgery theatres, paediatric theatres and three Endoscopy suites.”
