Glen Clywd Hospital, Rhyl
SBE were awarded the contract to redevelop a suite of five ‘modern and future-proofed’ operating theatres and the recovery area at Glen Clwyd in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire.
Out of the five new operating theatres, three were equipped for general surgery, and the other two were fitted with Ultra Clean Canopies for operations including orthopaedic procedures. Alongside these were new eight-bed recovery bays, patient waiting area, staff changing facilities and expanded clinical storage facilities.
The existing plant room served both the new first floor operating suite and two existing theatres on the ground floor below. The plant room re-fit entailed new equipment including an IPS/UPS system.
Specialist services installed by SBE included the installation of the fire alarm system and a new nurse call system throughout the project.
The new theatre facilities enable surgeons to undertake a wide range of surgical procedures, equipped with the most modern technology, in an environment that is not only lighter, brighter, and better laid out than the six previous theatres, but also improves patient flow, aids infection control, and greatly enhances the overall working efficiencies.
