Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating Suite

Payette as Architects

Payette is pleased to announce the Brigham & Women’s Hospital AMIGO Suite has been awarded a 2013 AAH Design Award. The project won in the category of Innovations in Planning and Design Research, Built and Unbuilt.

Advanced Surgical Theater The Advanced Multi-Modality Image Guided Operating (AMIGO) Suite represents a significant development in integrating imaging and surgery into one space. The Suite is located in a basement level of one of the nation’s premier hospitals. Three diagnostic and procedure rooms allow imaging to be utilized before, during and after surgery with minimal disruption to the patient and the surgical procedure. This suite provides clinicians and researchers with new opportunities for improving surgical techniques and developing new clinical methodologies.

Technology and Innovation In this groundbreaking clinical research facility, an operating room is linked to adjacent imaging suites, enabling the patient to remain static while the machines—including a 33,000-pound MRI—move from one chamber to another in the midst of a surgical procedure. The array of infrastructure necessary to enable this technology was deftly concealed behind walls and above ceilings, which were kept neutral in appearance so as not to compete with critical patient information displays.
