Nightingale Associates complete south Wales hospital

The 107-bed ‘Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan’ hospital has opened to patients, ending the first phase of the Corus steelworks in Ebbw Vale, south Wales.

The two-storey building was commissioned as a ‘pathfinder’ project to be delivered through the ‘Designed for Life: Building for Wales’ scheme.

Each of the 32-bed wards has a communal lounge and access to an outdoor terrace overlooking landscaped courtyards. All of the 107 beds are in single en-suites, designed to aid recovery by giving patients a greater level of privacy and dignity and reducing infections.

Its zig-zag shape is designed to maximise the potential for natural light, ventilation and views. The main entrance is more formal, following from the site’s industrial heritage.

This is the first 100 per cent-publicly funded single-room hospital in the UK.
