Sterile Processing Department at Gentofte Hospital, Denmark
Through integration of robotics and automation our system, which stores sterilized surgical equipment as it exits the autoclaves, has allowed the hospital to significantly reduce unintended incidents as well as staff, making the sterile storage facility much more efficient. The flexibility is second-to-none. Surgeons can order urgent deliveries to take advantage of unforeseen surplus capacity in the surgical wards, or if an operation requires surgical equipment aside from standard equipment ordered during the operation planning phase. Unscheduled orders are priority processed and delivered at an exit bay 45 seconds after order on local work station. Thus, operations may proceed seamlessly regardless of the obstacles encountered along the way, and that operating theatre capacity can be fully exploited at all times.

In this nonprofit project, we focus on practical solutions that are worth sharing among clinicians and others who are interested in improving our healthcare. We believe in the effect of knowledge sharing without a political agenda, from clinics to clinics across hospitals, regions, sectors, and professions. In the project we identify, describe and share cases that have the following common characteristics: - Cases that benefit the patient - Cases that have not resulted in higher costs - Cases that have found solutions that both ensure a better quality of care and treatment while ensuring more efficient utilization of resources
The new Odense University Hospital (OUH) embodies an innovative building of high architectural quality, designed to meet the requirements and challenges of tomorrow. Like the goddess Aurora, the hospital finds renewal in the transition between old and new – and the conversion from tradition to modernity. The human scale supports the conception of the hospital as ”the good host” and a place where patients and visitors can easily orient themselves and feel at home. When approaching Aurora, you are met by an inviting and recognisable urban scale, where the complex is divided into varied units with each their clear entrance and reception area. The individual is in focus in the circular city structure whose ground plan meets the requirements for a highly efficient, flexible and future-proof hospital and at the same time meets the employees, patients and other users where they are and with a high degree of respect.
