Stratton Community Hospital
A two phase redevelopment project was undertaken by Community 1st between late 2010 and 2012 to improve facilities for patients and staff at Stratton Community Hospital. The hospital re-opened on 5th November 2012.
Patients now have access to improved out-patient, x-ray and minor injuries unit (MIU) facilities as well as a new in-patient ward. In addition, a number of community teams will be based there which will improve communications between community and hospital staff – the ultimate goal being to improve the quality of patient care.
The new building offers more spacious accommodation, with purpose-built side rooms to support the privacy and dignity of patients and their families in end of life care.
The project is part of an ongoing programme of estate improvements and minor capital works by Community 1st Cornwall to support the NHS in Cornwall and ensure their estate is fit for purpose to meet infection control, privacy and dignity requirements and operating efficiently.
The first phase of refurbishment work started at the end of 2010 and involved the refurbishment of the out-patient department to allow the integration of the minor injuries unit. The works were split into two phases to allow the hospital to remain in operation throughout.
