Newton Community Hospital
Client: Halton and St Helens Primary care Trust
Location: St Helens
Status: Completed 2008.
The Newton Community Hospital in St Helens is a flagship development for the region and follows a £10 million capital investment by Halton and St Helens NHS Primary Care Trust.
The 4000m2 new facility was designed by Gilling Dod and constructed on time and to budget by Galliford Try. The new building houses a GP Practice and enables the PCT to offer a range of services including out posted hospital based services, 30 intermediate care beds, diagnostic services, x-ray , ultra-sound and ECG facilities under one roof. The new building will be owned by Partners 4 LIFT and maintained by Kiers Facilities Management and was one of numerous schemes delivered this way in the area.
The bespoke state of the art design was developed following close working with clinicians, staff and end users attending a number of detailed user group meetings to look at specific issues relating to the service model. There was also considerable input from CABE. Now in full occupation the facility is getting rave reviews from staff and patients alike as it establishes itself as a pivotal health facility located in the heart of the community it serves.
