A new state of the art Day Hospital, two theatres and capacity for numerous specialist procedures.

The building was preceded by an extensive design development period. Consideration was given to facilitate patient flow, experience and comfort, improve efficiencies, reduce bottlenecks, and provide a well-run facility as space was at a premium. Each space was carefully considered and designed to respond ergonomically to the requirements of the space.

The facility has two operating theatres, day surgery, one to supply ophthalmic Surgery and other general surgical procedures. The second theatre was designed to provide Endoscopy etc. and includes all associated functions, sterilisation, sterile storage, medical servicing, gasses, RO water etc.

The building included many technical challenges, pressurised theatres, HEPA filters to the aircon, UPS systems for surgical back up, medical services, anaesthetic gasses plus provision for reverse osmosis water supply for numerous medical functions, sterilisation etc. To mitigate the shortage in electrical power to the site a large PV array was provided with battery back-up. Design and co-ordination issues were given maximum consideration and the main contractor Lipman has done a sterling job on a very complex co-ordination front, addressing on site issues.
