Ridgeview Foundation has launched a campaign to purchase a new version of the da Vinci system as Ridgeview’s current model is being phased out and will no longer be supported. The latest version of da Vinci is equipped with cutting-edge technology that allows surgeons to perform additional procedures while offering advancements for optimal results.
By contributing to the da Vinci campaign, donors will help Ridgeview stay on the forefront of robotic-assisted medical technology and patient care.
The Emergency Department on the Waconia campus was last renovated 25 years ago and is in need of updates to improve our patients’ experience and privacy.
Renovation of the Emergency Department added 10,000 square feet to the existing 10,000 square foot facility, enhancing patient privacy, services and technology. The $18.8 million project highlights include:
- Observation Unit for those not requiring transfer to a hospital bed, but monitoring in a comforting environment.
- A mental health area where those needing support and solitude can get the help they need.
- New trauma rooms with advanced technology for those most critically injured.
- An improved designed and workflow to streamline care.
With this project, Ridgeview’s Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation department was moved to a new space—also 10,000 square feet—in the lower level with a gym, conference room and consult rooms.
