A £30 million hospital designed by P+HS Architects for private provider Nuffield Health has opened in Cambridge
The 38-bed facility is the first phase of a two-part redevelopment of Nuffield’s Cambridge Hospital site in the city’s Trumpington Road. It includes an operating suite with three theatres and will also provide diagnostics, physiotherapy, and endoscopy services.
P+HS director Phil Bentley said the project’s challenges had included designing a scheme that could be constructed alongside the existing hospital at the same time as respecting the site’s mature landscaped grounds.
‘Feedback from extensive consultation helped to shape the design, with input from clinicians, staff, neighbours, community and local interest groups,’ he said.
‘A key requirement of the design was the provision of an exceptional non-clinical environment, whilst incorporating specialist equipment and the latest technology to support the delivery of high quality healthcare.’
