Gloucestershire Royal Hospital Gloucester, United Kingdom
The Gloucestershire Royal Hospital is situated in the town of Gloucester, nestled between the Cotswold Hills and the Forest of Dean. The green floors of the £50 million extension opened in 2005 are supposed to reflect the surrounding countryside. As well as the modern extension, which contains the hospital’s 24-hour accident and emergency department, the hospital consists of a ten-storey tower with two 30-bed wards on each floor.
Gloucestershire Royal also boasts a new state-of-the-art Children’s Centre – a purpose-built unit providing care for children and young people (both inpatients and outpatients). As well as offering general medical and surgical treatment, the Children’s Centre has a high-dependency unit and a pediatric oncology unit, as well as designated spaces for recreational activities such as a play room, a school room, and an adolescent service which organizes additional activities for patients.
