Physician use of the OLC
Woodwinds is pleased to offer this state-of-the-art facility to all active orthopaedic MDs and PAs. You may drop in at any time.
The Orthopaedic Learning Center offers:
- Viewing, recording and archiving surgical procedures
- Live interaction from surgical suites to skills lab or conference center
- A sophisticated setting for small meetings or consultations
- Sawbones work table for clinical demonstrations
- Computer workstations for research, access to clinical applications, patient documentation or office contact

The OLC is designed to accommodate physician and staff use on a daily drop-in basis. For meetings or special events, the room should be scheduled in advance, please contact the OLC Coordinator at 651-232-0907 to reserve the room.
Accessing the OLC
All active orthopaedic MDs and their PAs have access to the OLC with a Woodwinds or HealthEast ID badge. Simply insert ID into the bottom of the black scan box located just outside and to the left of the door. The door will unlock automatically. If you have trouble, please contact Security.
All outside vendors and groups must check in at the Woodwinds Security Desk located at the ER entrance. Upon signing in, you will receive an OLC visitor badge allowing access to the room. The badge must be turned in before leaving for the day.
Request to videotape a surgical procedure
Take full advantage of the OLC's educational component by videotaping cases of interest for further study. Upon scheduling a surgical case at Woodwinds Health Campus, request that the procedure be videotaped.
That request will prompt two options to consider:
- Record/archive only, no projection
- Record/archive with projection into the skills lab and/or conference center
Two weeks' notice is recommended for all videotaping requests.
