Private London Bridge Hospital unveils new critical care unit

Published on 03/04/2012

Private Hospital London Bridge Hospital has opened its new and expanded critical care unit.

The new unit has 15 beds, 10 of which are single rooms and one of which is a dedicated respiratory isolation room. Each of the rooms is fitted with ‘smart glass’ windows which become opaque when privacy is required, reports Health Insurance Magazine.

The unit is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team, and consultant intensivists support the unit, which provides 24 hour cover.

John Reay, chief executive officer of London Bridge Hospital, said the unit has been built to meet a growing demand for critical care services.

He said: “With the increasing complexity and the growing range of tertiary medicine we provide, the new CCU helps provide additional care and enhances safety for patients. In the future, doctors and patients should expect all private hospitals to have a unit of this standard.”

The unit enables the intensive care teams to offer an enhanced one-to-one treatment service.

Carol Horsey, head of clinical services at London Bridge Hospital, said: “Individual rooms can aid recovery time and provide privacy for the patient and their family at a time which can be a very stressful and emotional period. The individual rooms also allow for increased infection control benefits for patients.

“We can provide a range of specialist support services that other private hospitals cannot in areas including cardiac surgery, liver transplants, and neuro surgery.”

Proactive, efficient, and offered me insurance I need. I would say half price I would end up paying if I did it by myself. Many thanks.
