26-bed spinal cord injury rehabilitation

Purpose-built hydrotherapy unit

New facility GIFA totalling 5726m2

As part of Welsh Government’s commitment to invest in the modernisation of NHS Wales and the improvement of facilities and outcomes for patients, our team are creating a new spinal rehabilitation unit together with the refurbishment and extension works to existing wards. This will replace the outdated facilities currently housed at Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff and will be one of only twelve spinal rehabilitation units in the UK.

The state-of-the-art unit will feature; a 26-bed spinal cord injury rehabilitation ward, a 24-bed specialist neuro-rehabilitation ward, a critical care service, a purpose-built hydrotherapy unit and independent living facilities to support earlier return to home.

The project involves the refurbishment of 4248m2 over three internal templates, taking them back to the structure before adding four new single and double-height extensions totalling an additional 1400m2. The finished building features a slate tile roof.

Operating within a live hospital site, the project team have had to put in place complex logistic plans across the wider hospital facility to minimise the impact of the construction process, whilst allowing the health board to continue to provide a facility that supports and cares for the patients and enables staff to deliver an exceptional service.
