Bridgwater Community Hospital is designed to the latest standards to provide a building that will deliver 21st century healthcare.
Planned around an internal courtyard and with generous areas of glazing the opportunities to bring natural light and ventilation into the building are maximised. Combined with the subtle internal colour scheme which was informed by our dementia strategy, the internal environment has a pleasant and calming atmosphere which is appreciated by patients, visitors and staff alike.
The new building replaces the previous hospital which after 200 years of service had become costly to maintain and was failing to meet many standards. It has 30 inpatient beds (18 of which are in single rooms), birthing, day treatment, imaging, outpatient and therapies departments, an endoscopy suite, and minor injuries unit.
