McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital in Oxford adds 3 new surgical suites


McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital announced today that the second phase of its “Growing To Meet Your Needs Campaign” is now complete with the opening of three new surgical suites at the Oxford hospital.

“We have brought state-of-the-art surgical facilities to Oxford,” said Brett Kirkpatrick, the hospital’s executive director. “These new rooms, along with providing a wider range of health care services for our community is making us more of a regional hospital than ever before. “Our patients now are being treated by specialized physicians in state-of-the-art environments without having to travel to Cincinnati, Indianapolis or Dayton.”

Dr. Bryan McCullough, an orthopedic surgeon with the TriHealth Orthopedic and Sports Institute, said the new suites benefit “not only the surgeons, but all health-care workers at the hospital and most importantly, the patients and their families.”

The new suites are approximately 40 percent larger than the previous surgical rooms. That additional space allows for equipment setup during surgical procedures.

In addition, surgical staff can move equipment around more easily with less risk of contaminating the operating field, a move that hospital officials say will help continue to improve quality of care.

In the past two-and-a-half years since McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital became part of the TriHealth network, the hospital had added TriHealth cancer, digestive, surgical and heart institute physicians on campus.

TriHealth’s $17-million investment in Oxford has led to the expansion and improvement of clinical services and a newly renovated emergency department that opened last summer.

Investments have covered the spectrum from capital to enhanced clinical services and support of community initiatives in Oxford including:

  • $10 million dollar capital infusion into the hospital and other sites for a state-of-the-art information technology system;
  • $3.5 million to expand and improve clinical services and locations;
  • $2.5 million toward a capital campaign for new facilities; $1 million capital investment (immediate);
  • $500,000 over three years to support community initiatives.
