Turning an OR into a Gold Room

Something special happened when this hospital designated a single operating room to be a model of production and efficiency.

Scott Gonzales, MD


Here at Beverly Hospital, we've designated one of our operating rooms the Gold Room, an exclusive suite where surgeons enjoy our fastest turnover times, best technical support, finest staff, and superior anesthesia and administrative services. The Gold Room represents the best our hospital has to offer in terms of surgical services. Our goal is to make our surgeons want to bring their cases to our hospital over other facilities in the area and for each of our ORs to emulate the Gold Room.
