Demolition work begins to pave way for new emergency department at Pilgrim Hospital
WORK has begun on the next phase of enabling works for a new multi-million-pound emergency department at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, in Lincolnshire. Designed to meet the needs of patients and staff, the £38 million redevelopment will see the demolition of the existing (H block) emergency department building and the erection of a two-storey extension with a full refurbishment.
The emergency department will more than treble in size and include state-of-the-art innovations and infection prevention control measures, have more cubicles to treat patients and a bigger resuscitation zone for patients. It will also include a separate area dedicated to providing emergency care for the hospital’s youngest patients and their families and have more training rooms for staff.
Once the demolition phase and enabling works are completed, the existing emergency facilities will be extended and improved, and put United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust in a position to hit the ground running on the multi-million-pound transformation of the new emergency Department.
