Private Hospital Operating Theatre Suite
Circle Health Group Invest in New Bespoke Theatre and Recovery
The Beardwood Hospital, previously the Beardwood Hall, has been operating since 1957 and provides various specialist services and clinics such as oncology, orthopaedics and cardiology.
The hospital treats mainly private medical insurance patients or those who are funding their own procedures, offering medical care, ambulatory care and operating services for children and adults, as well as outpatients, and diagnostic imaging services.
Sam Sheehan, executive director for The Beardwood Hospital, said:
“Working with ModuleCo for the installation of an additional operating theatre on our site has been a seamless effort. Demand for our hospital services continues to grow, therefore, it is imperative that we increase our capacity ensuring we can treat as many patients as we can and offering them care close to home.”
An investment in the new theatre facility was required to provide state-of-the-art technology and extra capacity to treat patients faster and provide the highest level of care.
The new theatre facility provides the Hospital with:
- 208m2 operating theatre suite
- 55m2 operating room with screened UCV canopy with HEPA filters and an integrated 3-person scrub
- 45m2 2-bed first stage recovery ward
- Sterile pack store
- Dirty utility
- Multiple store rooms
The project presented a challenge for both our design and project teams but one that they have experience taking on. The site identified for the new theatre meant the theatre had to be mounted on a raised structure, linking the facility into the existing hospital at first floor level.
Having designed and delivered facilities on large podium structures and in far more restrictive sites, the challenge was easy one for both teams to overcome.
Cheryl McGreevy, Beardwood’s Theatre Manager, said:
“The opening of the new theatre allows us to care for more patients and give them faster access to treatment. It’s a much needed valuable addition to the hospital facilities and we are delighted to have the extra capacity.”
Our award-winning Operating Theatres are designed around both the patient and the professional clinical teams that use them every day. Having delivered over 120 state-of-the-art facilities in the UK alone, our team has learned precisely what healthcare professionals expect from a high quality facility.
Surgical hubs provide all of the resource, skill and accommodation within one dedicated healthcare facility, typically located on existing hospital sites but can also be established as standalone premises.
