Moving to a New Department!

16 10 2009

The pathology department at Albany Medical Center is moving!  Our current building is being demolished and replaced by a new, second, huge OR suite on track for a 2011 opening.  Our new accommodations will now be in the hospital proper (very exciting).

We are moving Tuesday, but the bones are all in place, and the new dept. looks beautiful.  We will have two full sign out rooms accommodating 4 multi-headed scopes.  A single central residents room with 16 cubbies and a separate attached office for the chief residents.  Each of the cubbies has its own ethernet jack, and there is a common area for department computers, printers, and image capturing scopes.  The new conference room is greatly opened and expanded and will contain a new projection system with a smart board and all modular furniture.  We are giving up some window real estate, but ultimately we are closer to the morgue, the OR, the cafeteria and the parking garage; so, overall, I think this is definitely an upgrade for us.

How does it stack up to yours?
