Designed in collaboration with Medical Architecture and BAM Construction on behalf of Humber NHS Foundation Trust, the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group and local council have approved our plans for a scheme which integrates primary, secondary health and social care on this constrained and prominent site overlooking the harbour at Whitby.
The ambition of health services to achieve better integration between primary, secondary health and social care gave us the opportunity to remodel the existing hospital site and unlock the area for new supported housing on this prominent site overlooking the harbour.
One Environments created the public realm and landscape strategy for the steeply sloping 3.8acre site based around three principal spaces; main entrance concourse, contemplation courtyard garden and public access areas. The complex scheme will be staggered over multiple phases needed to keep the hospital operational.
This flagship project exemplifies the aims of new NHS Plan bringing complex diagnosis and treatment closer to the local population.
Whitby Hospital is the third significant healthcare project that One Environments have secured in Yorkshire following on from Guisborough Hospital and East Hull Integrated Care Centre.
