The Clinical Need

Newham Hospital is working to improve its infrastructure and equipment over the next year to provide more and better services for patients.

A big part of this investment is a brand-new building that will house a 26-bed general ward and a 14-bed Critical Care Unit (CCU).

The former will give the hospital flexibility so they can adapt to and meet the needs of the local population. The latter will be purpose-built to enable staff to provide a better level of care for the most critically-ill patients.

Staff and patients benefit significantly from a good built environment so carefully designing a fully-compliant space has been essential. All healthcare details from infection prevention and control technology to hot and cold zoning and natural daylight has been carefully considered and discussed with hospital colleagues.

The Challenges

As this is a busy hospital which caters to the people of Newham Borough and beyond, disruption during construction and traffic to and from the location of the new building need to be kept to a minimum during its construction.

Our Solution

A new two-storey extension with a ward, office accommodation and a CCU, utilising Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).

Health Spaces has worked with the hospital clinical teams to develop their requirements and understand what was possible. The solution was a two-storey building, linked to the main hospital, to provide a 14-bed CCU on the first floor, and a 26-bed ward and administration offices on the ground floor. This will provide additional space that will help provide a better service and experience for patients and staff.

Utilising Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), we can ensure that the modules are pre-constructed off-site and then delivered to site to ensure for minimal disruption to the hospital’s operations.

Work has already begun on a site located near the St Andrew’s Wing entrance of the hospital, and the new facilities are expected to be operational by summer 2023.
