BRIDGWATER COMMUNITY HOSPITAL HAND OVER
9 February 2014
The new Bridgwater Community Hospital achieved Practical Completion and was handed over to the client, Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, on Monday 3rd February on programme and within budget.
DKA are pleased to see this milestone reached having been working with the NHS on designs for this 5000m² Community Hospital since 2011. We were subsequently employed by successful Procure 21+ contractors, Integrated Health Projects, to see the project through its completion.
With a 30 bed Inpatient Ward, Midwife led Birthing Unit, Therapies, Outpatients and X-ray departments along with a Minor Injuries Unit, this will replace the current outdated hospital in the town centre with new facilities providing 21st century healthcare standards.
The new hospital will become operational from 28th April, however for those of you interested in a tour round the building beforehand there is a public open-day on Saturday 5th April.
