New Victoria Hospital
A bespoke system for a special expansion
New Victoria Hospital, Surrey, is a charity owned hospital renowned for providing an excellent level of service to its local community. Originally opening its doors in 1958, the hospital has been providing the highest level of care to patients for almost sixty years and is now one of the few remaining independent hospitals in the country. Recently it’s been going through an exciting period of refurbishment and expansion, with the construction of a brand-new wing completed at the end of 2016.
Maintaining a quality care environment
The newly built Victoria Foundation Wing houses three state-of-the-art operating theatres, an endoscopy theatre, a 2-bed high-dependency unit, a 6-bed recovery area and a 14-bed day surgery unit, bringing the total number of beds in the hospital to 35.
A complete survey of the site was carried out by Stansons Group, which included a full manufacture survey, calculation and templating of curved cubical tracking, all in accordance with the architect Colwyn Foulkes’ specific requirements. These were unique to the hospital in that custom designed curved Movatrack tracking was needed.
The Stansons solution
Stansons worked closely with main contractor Rydon, upon securing the roller blinds and cubicle tracking package. The installation team fitted Armour dim-out and black-out roller blinds in the conference and training rooms.
Stansons were also contacted directly by the hospital’s Facilities Manager to supply custom print cubicle curtains to fit the bespoke Movatrack system which had been installed in the day surgery and recovery area. Stansons were able to scope, supply and install these custom designed curtains in time for the new Victoria Foundation Wing’s special opening.
A grand unveiling
New Victoria Hospital’s new wing was successfully completed, and was officially opened on the 21st September 2016 by HRH Princess Alexandra. The expansion project, however, will continue up until Autumn 2017 with a new outpatient department and reception area; 12 consulting rooms, a new physiotherapy department and a new pharmacy.
