Homerton Short Stay Unit

Client:Homerton University NHS Trust
Duration:12 weeks

Project Description

The Homerton University Hospital in Hackney provides a wide range of emergency services to the local community. Specialist services are also provided in neonatal care, fertility and neuro-rehabilitation.

The hospital has approximately 440 beds at present.  The Accident and Emergency Department sees 70,000 attendances per year and is supported by teams in general medicine, general surgery, orthopaedics, and obstetrics & gynaecology.

Lengard undertook the internal and external refurbishment of the Short Stay Centre. The project involved the creation of a new theatre recovery suite for the main day-stay ward, and associated services.

The project was undertaken over a 28-week programme with the focus being on minimising disruption to the nursing staff and patients.
