Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Cystic Fibrosis Unit
Sheffield Children's Hospital
Race Cottam worked closely with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals to develop a concept for a new type of in-patient facility to help make lengthy hospital stays more comfortable. The new unit ensures patients choose to come to Sheffield for their treatment.
Each of the 12 single, en-suite bedrooms in the refurbishment has a different theme, from New York Loft to Zen Garden. The boutique hotel style has been continued with a refreshing colour scheme and bespoke fitted furniture, which disguises the medical equipment to give a less clinical appearance. As well as plasma screen televisions, laptops and Wii’s in each room, the unit benefits from an exercise suite, a kitchen, assisted bathroom and two treatment rooms.
Innovative use of copper ironmongery to help reduce infections makes sure the new unit sets the standard for Cystic Fibrosis treatment.
