North Middlesex University Hospital
The new PFI hospital building spreads over 25 000 sq ft, and is home to a state-of-the-art A&E department, In addition, a number of other departments have been created/relocated:
- Early Emergency Assessment Unit, totalling 48 beds
- Bespoke paediatric A&E area
- Eight new theatres, of which three will provide day surgery
- Diagnostics Unit with state of the art equipment including a 3 Tessler MRI scanner, two new CT scanners, four ultrasound units, and a new mammography unit
- New Outpatients Department
- New ITU unit with 12 beds
- Four inpatient wards, totalling 119 beds
In contrast with the old hospital, the new development is light and airy, with all the refurbished departments linked together by bridges. This creates a single hospital environment, with clinical facilities centred on patients’ needs. Interlinked corridors between the new and existing buildings further improve the internal circulation for patients and staff.
A purpose-designed main entrance was incorporated into the design, with a further entrance on the east side, both served by public transport, with three bus services routed through the hospital grounds.
A range of retail outlets have been included for patients, staff and visitors, and restaurant facilities are provided in the previous Outpatient Building.
A new Energy Centre has also been constructed.
