Hospital now includes two operating rooms
With the completion of the remodeling project, Perkins County Health Services now has two operating rooms that are side by side. The second operating room is slightly smaller than this one. Dr. Shane Banks noted he and Dr. Jim Schiefen were each performing surgery at the same time last week, made possible by the addition of the second OR. The operating room also features a new Stryker laparoscopic tower, shown near the end of the operating table. This unit was the first of its kind delivered by Stryker in Nebraska.
