A July 1 target date has been
set for the opening of Sinai Hos-
pital's 156-bed Max M. and Mar-
jorie S. Fisher Patient Care Wing
which will feature the most up-to-
date hospital equipment and op-
erations syste min the country.
Construction of the $10,200,000
wing began April 1, 1969, and was
made p o s si b 1 e by an initial
$500,000 gift from the Fisher fam-
The four-story, 150,000-square-
foot facility will be ready for part-
ial occupancy on July 1 starting
with a 17-bed operating suite and
materials management center on
the ground floor, a 12-bed surgical
intensive care unit on the second
floor and '75 private and semi-pri-
vate beds on the third floor.
The rest of the building will be
phased into operation over the
next several months, Sydney C.
Peimer, hospital administrator,
In addition to the operating
suite, the ground floor will contain
a 16-bed preoperative holding area
and a Z6-bed recovery room.
. Both of them will be adjacent to
the operating suite which will sub-
stantially reduce delays in moving
patients in and out of the operating
"Hospitals average about a 55
per cent operating room utiliza-
tion," Preimer said. "We expect
this to increase Jo :- nearly 80 per
cent Whic114W;h6-10:=4,0- 'improve

Our patient-holding area will

and one of the very fewin - the.

A Central _supply system will
contribute to greater operatin
room efficiency, he said.- Under
this system, a day's supply of sur-
gical instruments will be kept in
a separate holding area outside the
operating room.
In most hospitals, instrument
sets are assembled in the operating
room just prior to the procedure.

A unit dose program will be im-
plemented in the Fisher Wing.
This will provide for the prepar-
don of each patient's individual
dose of.. medication in the phar-
macy for subsequent delivery to
the nursing unit where it will then
be administered by the nurse.
Traditionally, quantities of medi-
cation are stored on the patient
floor where doses are prepared
by the nurse following a physi-
cian's order.
Later in the summer, the hospi-
tal will open 68 private and semi-
private beds on the second floor
of the new wing as well as first
floor facilities including an admit-
ting area with waiting room and
individual interview areas, a med-

ical records department, a steno-
graphic pool, social services and
business offices, and an opthal-
mology clinic.
The wing will increase the to-
tal bed capacity at Sinai to 619
and increase hospital admissions
by 5,000 to approximately 20,-
000 per year.
More than 400 employes will
be required for staffing, which
will raise the total number of
Sinai e m p l o y e s to more than
1,900 including full and part time.
Sinai opened with an initial 210
beds in January 1953. Since then
it has grown into a major medi-
cal complex with extensive facili-
ties for research and professional

Look Editor Defends
Interview With Prinz

NEW YORK (JTA) --- Gerald
Astor, the Look magazine senior
editor who has been criticized by
Dr. Joachim Prinz for allegedly
- distorting" his comments for use
in the a r ticl e "The Agonized
American Jews," said that the
quotations printed were all docu-
mented in the notes he took during
their three-hour interview.
"I respect him greatly," said
Astor of Dr. Prinz, former presi-
dent of the American Jewish Con-
gress, when queried by the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, "but when a
man speaks at great length," not
all his remarks can he published.
Astor added that "I don't feel
that I have seriously missed some-
thing that he said."
On one specific complaint of Dr.
Prinz's, that he was not, as al-
leged, "a 1937 graduate of solitary
confinement in a Nazi concentra-
tion camp," Astor said his notes
showed that Dr. Prinz left Ger-
many after experiencing "solitary
confinement in a Nazi jail."
