O-Arm Surgical Imaging System

Mercy is home to the most advanced navigation-assisted equipment available in Northwest Arkansas. The O-Arm and StealthStation platforms allow surgeons to take CT scans before, during and after surgery, helping them increase accuracy, whether placing spinal instrumentation or removing a brain tumor.

The technology is used most often for spinal surgery but is also useful for cranial surgery. It can be used for elective procedures and in trauma. Navigation assistance is ideal for a complex case because it increases accuracy while keeping the procedure as minimally invasive as possible. 

Neurosurgical Robotics and Navigation 

Mercy Northwest Arkansas has the region’s only robotic digital microscope and navigation system. The new voice-controlled technology seamlessly combines high-tech engineering with the latest breakthroughs in 3D optics, video processing, and robotic automation, allowing our neurosurgeons to perform complex, less invasive procedures. In addition to tumor resection, the microscope can be used for spinal decompression, lumbar decompression and anterior cervical discectomy and fusion.

Fall 2020 Hospital Safety Grade 

Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas was recognized nationally and awarded an A from The Leapfrog Group’s Fall 2020 Hospital Safety Grade. 

The designation recognizes Mercy’s efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States. The Safety Grade assigns A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hospitals nationwide based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harm among patients in their care. Those scores were announced today by The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit patient safety advocate.  

"Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Grades recognize hospitals like Mercy that focus on advancing patient safety. This ranking provides an important resource for patients, and a benchmark for hospitals, to determine how care at one hospital compares to others in a region,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. 

“Hospitals that earn an A Hospital Safety Grade deserve to be recognized for their efforts in preventing medical harm and errors." 

Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.
