Following extensive local engagement, exciting plans to improve, expand and invest in services at Crawley Hospital were taken forward.
The redevelopment was a response to patient engagement, bringing more services in Crawley under one roof, closer to home.
The project included refurbishment of the Urgent Treatment Centre, an extended Clinical Assessment Unit, an expanded area for treating children, and a larger reception area to ensure the best possible experience for local patients. The plans also included a new ward - Piper Ward - also at Crawley hospital, with 26 beds for people who need hospital care but are not so unwell they need treatment at a bigger, acute hospital such as East Surrey Hospital. The ward includes art therapy unit, gymnasium and assisted kitchen facilities.
