One Hatfield Hospital, Hertfordshire’s newest hospital now completed on the Hatfield Business Park brings a range of new healthcare facilities and services to the area in a purpose-built facility. Equipped with the latest diagnostic, medical and surgical technologies. The One Hatfield hospital has 3 theatres, 10 consultation rooms, 18 inpatient beds, 14 bedrooms for day care patients, a physiotherapy gym and outpatient diagnostic facilities, which include; fast-track access to XRAY and MRI. It will employ around one hundred and fifty staff, many from the borough, in a variety of roles from consultants to hotel services. The two-story building on Hatfield Avenue has 122 free car parking spaces for visitors and staff, plus a covered area for bicycles, as well as charging points for electronic vehicles.
The energy efficient BREEAM Excellent awarded project has the lowest possible carbon footprint and was specially constructed with local residents in mind. The hospital has a managed recycling plan, the latest roof-top solar panel system for optimum electrical generation, plus a Combined Heating and Power (CHP) unit which also produces electricity.
We have worked tirelessly to build good relationships with the local community. The project was recently awarded top marks in the Considerate Constructors Scheme and scoring ‘Exceptional’ in the Community, Environment, Safety and valuing the Workforce categories. We achieved the highest possible rating of 5 stars and have been nominated at this years’ National Site Awards to be held in London. During the project, we provided a free skip for local residents, offered a free handy man service to all residents to carry out jobs such as window cleaning, car washing and gardening, as well as donating to the local schools, holding a drawing competition at Green Lanes Primary School and supported the local charity Isabel Hospice.
Mayor Sparks said:
I thoroughly enjoyed my recent site visit, the building and facilities are very impressive. As well as the new jobs that the Hospital will create, I was particularly interested to learn how both One Hatfield Hospital and Conlon have not only worked hard to create a building that is sensitive to the surrounding neighbourhood, they’ve also worked to build positive relationships with local residents and assure me they will continue to play an active part in community life.
Adrian Stevensen, chief executive of One Healthcare, said:
One Hatfield Hospital is the second state-of-the-art private hospital development from One Healthcare following the opening of Ashford Hospital last year, which was also delivered by Conlon and has since seen tremendous success. We can’t wait to open its doors and provide great private care for people of Hertfordshire and beyond.
Sean Conlon, added:
We are excited to be involved with this project and are proud to have delivered our second state of the art hospital with One Healthcare. It marks the team’s achievements since starting on site and is a real credit to our staff and complete supply chain that have worked on this fantastic project.
