New model of hospital care within the UK
Stride Treglown are leading a full multidisciplinary team to deliver a pathfinder project, which provides a new model of hospital care within the UK. This is the largest hospital project to be let under the ProCure 21+ framework.
The proposed 360-bed Critical Treatment Hospital is at the front of a first wave of hospitals that only provide specialist and critical care services. Elective surgery, general medicine and outpatient services will be undertaken at surrounding local hospital sites.
The new-build hospital centralises the Trust’s high acuity care, on a site that is located to maximise rapid emergency access for the surrounding population. This facility enables 24/7 access to these specialist services; which supports safer, more sustainable clinical services and even better outcomes, for the Trust’s most critically ill patients.
The purpose built, state of the art, hospital is to be built on a 22 hectare greenfield site that also incorporates a Cancer Treatment Centre, an Energy Centre, a Pathology Building and an Ambulance Station. The masterplan has been developed to enhance sustainability and environmental issues, whilst minimising the impact upon its surroundings.
The 37,500m2 hospital is designed around compact clinical functional relationships, which maximises the clinical interdependencies and facilitates efficient diagnosis and treatment. The building has therefore been organised into four key functional clinical groups: (1) Emergency, Diagnostics, Paediatrics; (2) Theatres, Critical Care, Vascular Care; (3) Maternity, Neonatology; and, (4) Inpatient Wards.
The £160m project is anticipated to be the largest UK major hospital project to be delivered via the ProCure 21+ construction framework. A fast-track design, procurement and construction programme will see the hospital open at the end of 2018.
