Hinckley & Bosworth Community Hospital

Hinkley

The new build Community Hospital, for Hinckley & Bosworth Primary Care Trust, comprising two wards and the associated support areas, is constructed on the original “Sunnyside” hospital site in the outskirts of Hinckley, providing localised in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation services.

The Hospital includes a mixture of single and four bed wards, together with day rooms, treatment rooms, palliative care and discharge suites.

In addition to providing sustainable, contextually appropriate premises, the brief required the avoidance of long intimidating corridors. Thus the facilities are grouped in “pods” of related accommodation, around open areas linked by short access corridors to create an identifiable and domestic ambience.
