Stryker Calls On KR Wolfe to Help Upgrade OR Lighting at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Stryker Corporation and KR Wolfe have collaborated on a number of hospital / OR renovation projects in recent years and have established a solid professional relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

That’s why, when Stryker was awarded the contract to upgrade the lighting technology inside eight operating rooms at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), they reached out to KR Wolfe to serve as a key subcontractor on the project. The project launched on October 10, 2019, and is expected to be completed by October 27, 2019.

Prior to work commencing, Stryker and KR Wolfe personnel attended safety orientations and made preparations to provide all the required personal protection equipment (PPE). Our team of three expert technicians worked closely with the CHOP facility project manager at every phase of the installation.

According to KR Wolfe CEO, Rachel Wolfe,

“The project involved the removal of outdated surgical lighting and installation of state of the art lighting with an in-light camera.  Working onsite at any Children’s Hospital is always an experience that’s close to our hearts, and we view it as an opportunity to help elevate the level of care for kids with serious illnesses and injuries while minimizing disruption to sensitive hospital operations.”

Once the project is complete, CHOP will have eight ORs newly outfitted with the most advanced lighting and in-light camera capabilities to provide care to CHOP patients. These lighting installations will help surgeons perform procedures at a higher standard, speeding recovery times for these precious patients and allowing them to return to spending quality time with their families.
