Description of Service
New Hospital Development Project (Phase One)
The Health Planning Team (HPT) functions as the client’s (NRH) representative on the New Hospital Project team.
The primary responsibility of the Health Planning Team is to capture the requirements of our stakeholders both internal and external, and act as facilitators working in partnership with the technical design team to translate those clinical, operational and human requirements into a fit for purpose design for the New Hospital Project. Our
stakeholders are defined as any individual who will use the new building or any aspect of the NRH service.
Phase One of the new hospital development is complete and all existing patient accommodation at the NRH now consists of 120 new specifically designed patient bedrooms and integrated rehabilitation-specific treatment spaces. The building also includes a new hydrotherapy unit and sports and exercise therapy department.
The new hospital building main structure is designed to link into the existing clinical and support services that will remain in the existing hospital building pending completion of Phase Two.
Development of Phases 2 and 3
The NRH site development comprises three principle phases of which the current 120 Bed development is Phase 1. The Health Planning Team will complete a brief and prepare documentation for the appointment of a design team to commence the design development of Phase 2 in 2020. Phase 2 includes for the relocation of all existing therapies and support facilities to a new modern development, to serve the new 120 bed hospital. The completion of Phase 2 will facilitate the demolition of the existing hospital buildings and the development of the Phase 3 to increase the bed and service capacity of the hospital.
One of the key responsibilities of the NRH as an internationally accredited rehabilitation hospital is to enable patients to improve their ability, independence and self-reliance, while protecting and promoting their rights.
The new hospital is designed to create that specific environment to aid the delivery of rehabilitation by an integrated team, which includes the patient. The design of the hospital is patient-centred and based on the principles of empowerment, dignity, privacy, confidentiality and choice.
