Work progresses at George Eliot Hospitals new theatre suite

posted: 26th Apr 2021

Work continues on Wernick Building’s latest project for George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton. The new theatre suite is made up of 27 modular units which were manufactured at Wernick’s factory in South Wales and transported to site for installation over 3 days.

On completion the fully HTM compliant project will offer enhanced 3000mm ceiling heights and UCV Canopy installations with laparoscopic provisions to provide a high-quality surgical environment.

The project closely follows the successful completion of the Captain Sir Tom Moore Unit, which provided two 15 bed wards for general and orthopaedic elective surgery patients.

Delivered during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wernick were able to provide a permanent solution within 14 weeks in response to the increased urgency of the hospital’s requirements.
