Devon & Cornwall Nightingale Hybrid Facility, Exeter

Project Description

The NHS Nightingale Hospital Exeter, based at Moor Lane was built to provide care for patients suffering from symptoms of COVID-19 and subsequent recovery

The site, which was previously a warehouse, includes five fully integrated interim modular buildings. This doubled the size of the existing space to accommodate essential hospital facilities
including the pharmacy, staff welfare, catering, utility rooms, patient transfer and stores

The 116 bed, flexible clinical model will ensure all levels of need are catered for, including an Intensive Therapy Unit and in-patient care. It also provides extra capacity so that the existing five hospitals in the region can continue to operate other essential clinical services

Unlike it’s sister sites, which were constructed solely to treat COVID-19 patients, the Nightingale Hospital Exeter is a mini general hospital with near theatre-standard performance,
complete with scanners. It is currently being used as a diagnostics centre supporting a wide range of patients

Designed and built in less than 57 days, the hospital is a true testament of design and build collaboration between SDS, BAM Construction and the wider supply chain.
