The new Stonehaven renal unit is designed to provide vital facilities to the community and surrounding areas.
Orpington Hospital identified the need to improve the staff facilities at the Hospital, to provide a well-being hub for hard-working staff to relax and take their breaks in. A courtyard within the Hospital provided the perfect space for an outdoor break area. The trust knew providing a place to rest would enhance staff well-being and help with retention and recruitment.
Ocura worked closely with Claire and her colleagues at Orpington Hospital, to design an area that would provide a high level of comfort and convenience for staff, whilst complementing the modern design of the new facility. Space planning and design concepts helped Claire and her team decide on the preferred styles of furniture. Earthy colours were selected to create a woodland theme for the well-being hub.
Wonderful area, relaxing and comfortable, great for time to reflect.
The new purpose-built facility in the hospital courtyard is a bright and airy space for staff to take a restful break, and have a snack or beverage. The Trust selected Koko sofas and custom-made stools for the interior area, and Aurora chairs and tables for the exterior area.
MP Gareth Bacon who opened the facility says it “looks fantastic”. Professor Clive Kay, Chief Executive of King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Orpington Hospital, said, “We know how important facilities like this are, and I am very pleased that we have been able to create such a fantastic space. I hope staff will enjoy this facility for many years to come”.
The hospital charity, Friends of Orpington Hospital gave a generous donation towards the project, funding the furniture for both the interior and exterior.
The Orpington Hospital Wellbeing Hub is comfortable, relaxing, has inviting colours, the space is fantastic and a brilliant peaceful area for staff
