A new state-of-the-art 60 bed Intermediate Care Unit helping patients regain their independence before they return home has officially opened at the Salford Royal Hospital. The new Unit is accommodating 60 Patients, and has been designed as a low-rise development over two floors, responding to the local context and also to emulate the feeling of a residential setting.
Patients will have access to comfortable, engaging shared spaces at both levels, to encourage social interaction and independence, whilst providing functional areas for dining, rehabilitation and physiotherapy. The interior design focuses on the communal areas to encourage patients to leave their bedrooms / bay areas.
The new Unit was designed by DAY Architectural, Mercury Engineering Consultancy and MDA Structural. DAY Project Management Ltd were the appointed Project Manager to deliver the new Unit on behalf of Salford City Council and the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group. Galliford Try were the appointed Contractor on the scheme.
The DAY Team are privileged to have been appointed to deliver this project to provide further support to the NHS and our Clients at Salford City Council.
