Critical Care Unit South

Part of the ongoing refurbishment at Homerton Hospital in Hackney and one of a number of projects which Hunters is designing for the Trust, the new Critical Care Unit, has been revamped.

Located on the first floor, the new major internal refurbishment features state of the art upgrades and makes use of underutilised space to provide a better patient and staff experience and improved healthcare.

The design concept aimed to improve the department’s layout to achieve optimal infection prevention control; refurbishment of the support facilities to uplift patient experience; installation of new plant rooms to house new ventilation systems – AHU and its UPS/IPS systems.

Hunters worked with Stakeholders to develop a new Care Unit design that can make the most of the existing space. The new area is rationalised to provide a well-sequenced flow for both patients and clinical support staff, with clear wayfinding and location markers incorporating a bold colourscheme and clear signage. We have focused on all building users – patients, visitors and the staff to ensure a friendly environment is offered throughout.
