Healthcare Market News – 1st October 2016 – New Ward Will Meet Increasing Demand for Services at London’s Nightingale
London’s Nightingale Hospital has opened a new 14-bed ward at its facility in Lisson Grove, taking its total capacity to 73 beds. The hospital, which was acquired from Capio AB by French private mental healthcare specialist Groupe Sinoué in 2015, said the move was in response to a 20% increase in demand for inpatient care over the last five years.
As well as new en suite bedrooms, the ward includes occupational therapy spaces, three group therapy rooms and large, open plan communal areas complete with a kitchen. The new ward marks the completion of Nightingale’s four-year refurbishment plan at the site and will initially serve general psychiatry patients, who will be offered tailor-made treatment programmes, including individuals and group therapy sessions.
Nightingale Hospital managing director Martin Thomas said, “I am delighted to announce the opening of the new ward which marks the completion of our four-year refurbishment programme. The new ward will provide patients with the highest quality care in a supportive and welcoming environment to help them on their road to recovery.”
