We are currently on site at QEQM Hospital, Margate, continuing our extensive refurbishment of the Emergency Department following completion of Phases 1, 2 and 3a.
Phase 3a involved rebuilding the existing resuscitation unit, where some of the most critically ill patients in the hospital are treated, providing five new state-of-the-art resuscitation bays.
Other upgrades to maximise the space include a new commercial kitchen, storage spaces, accessible toilets and clean and dirty utility areas.
A new ambulance road has also been completed to provide direct access for emergency vehicles to the new emergency department entrance.
Phase3b, the next and final stage of the project, will see two additional cubicles, relatives’ room and point-of-care-testing facilities, as well as reinstating temporary areas.
Final completion is due early next year.
Phase 1 - a new children’s emergency department, new treatment areas for adults, new entrance waiting area and much-needed space for staff to work, learn and rest.
Phase 2 - a new rapid assessment and treatment unit with twelve large new treatment rooms and dedicated mental health facilities.
Phase 3a - Resuscitation Unit
