About Highbury Hospital
We redeveloped the hospital in 2004, which involved the demolition of an old Victorian hospital block, which was formerly a maternity hospital.
It was redesigned to create a new, modern high-quality hospital, which could accommodate more beds and support better care services. It aimed to create a homely environment within the wards where possible, which is not overly clinical.
The hospital remained fully operational through the four phases of redevelopment.
The hospital occupies a 13 acre site and is set within attractive landscaped gardens, which also includes a sensory dementia garden designed by us specifically for patients living with dementia.
A number of our healthcare services were used, including care home development, change management and service delivery.
It was redesigned to increase the number of beds and support better care services. With 135 beds and 200 staff, it is our largest healthcare project.
Highbury Hospital was refurbished by Walker Healthcare which also oversees the on-going facilities management. All clinical care services are provided by the NHS and specialist support is provided by Aramark.
