Montagu Hospital Rehabilitation Centre
Design: Capita Symonds
Location: Mexborough, Doncaster, England
Designs for a new rehabilitation centre at Montagu Hospital in Mexborough have been unveiled.
Capita Symonds is designing and project managing the construction of the new hospital unit which will transform the way that people recovering from serious injury or illness are cared for.
Unlike traditional hospital rehab, patients will receive their own personalised programme of intensive therapeutic care seven days a week, tailored to meet their individual needs. The unit will include kitchen facilities and relaxation areas so patients build ordinary daily activities into their recovery in addition to the therapy they receive.
The centre is being built on the site of an old part of the hospital that has been empty since the creation of the new Pain Management Unit at Montagu Hospital. The vacant blocks are being demolished before the site is cleared so that work to lay the foundations of the new rehabilitation centre can begin by the New Year.
Plans to create a new rehabilitation centre at Montagu Hospital were approved by local health commissioners in February 2012 following extensive public consultation. The hospital is already home to a wide range of health services including day surgery, kidney dialysis, oral and maxillofacial surgery, outpatients, a large and newly-developed pain management unit, rehabilitation wards, and a popular minor injuries unit. The new rehabilitation centre will be an addition to the services provided there.
Natalie Sarabia-Johnston, Lead Architect for Capita Symonds, said: “This is a great project for Capita Symonds to be involved with, as it is one of the first buildings of this type in this country and a great investment for the Trust.”
The project is due for completion this summer.
