WHH’s New Children’s Assessment Centre

25/1/24

Another 2gether Support Solutions milestone in 2023! Our Estates teams were part of building the new children’s assessment unit at William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, which was opened in December 2023.

The new children’s assessment unit at the William Harvey Hospital treats young patients who need urgent care, but who are unlikely to be admitted as inpatients.

The colourful and spacious new unit has seven beds, two consultant rooms, a waiting room and a reception. It’s furnished with new state-of-the-art equipment, which enables the unit to treat a wider range of patients.

The children’s assessment unit forms part of the new paediatric emergency department that opened earlier this year, and concludes the final phase of the new William Harvey hospital emergency department.

Jane Dickson, interim chief operating officer said: “It’s fantastic to see the emergency department completed at the William Harvey Hospital. Thank you to everyone who worked hard to make the plans a reality.

“We’re also expecting the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in Margate to conclude building a new children’s assessment unit next year.”

We’re so proud of our brilliant and dedicated Building and Estates teams, who were part of making this project possible.
