The McIndoe Centre Refurbishment Programme
The McIndoe Centre, part of Horder Healthcare, has embarked on an ambitious project to totally refurbish its site in East Grinstead. The hospital was acquired by award winning independent healthcare charity Horder Healthcare last year and the acquisition formed part of a strategic vision to extend their reach, to identify the healthcare needs within communities and work collaboratively, with others to provide them with those much needed services.
We plan to safeguard the proud history of plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery for which The McIndoe Centre is held in such high regard by providing a bright, new and functional environment allowing patients the appropriate levels of comfort, privacy and dignity to ensure their visit to hospital is as pleasant as possible. Allied to this will be the introduction of an increased range of general surgical procedures with the particular emphasis being in orthopaedic surgery.
In order to introduce these new services significant parts of the hospital infrastructure needed to be upgraded, such as the heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems which serve the Theatre complex. The phased nature of the rebuild combined with the need to keep the hospital functioning will mean that it will take up to 4 years to complete the majority of the planned works. All prospective patients should be aware that this building programme is in progress but they should also be assured that the refurbishment project team are working hard to minimise any disruption and noise these works may cause.
Though the old McIndoe Centre will remain recognisable for some time yet to come, the impact of positive change and improvement will very shortly be strongly felt.
