Bon Secours Hospital, Cork
The project included a major extension and refurbishment of part of the existing operational hospital. The extension consisted of two levels of 51-bed units, ground level physiotherapy unit, multi-purpose room, isolation rooms, nurses’ stations, offices, meeting rooms, canteen, and restaurant.
The hospital required new isolation room doors as part of the refurbishment. The upgrade was an essential part of the trusts strategy to increase capacity at the hospital and to drive infection control and operating efficiency. Dortek were asked to replace the existing doors with a more functional and hygienic alternative to meet these goals.
Dortek supplied and installed specialist glazed bi-parting doors across the hospital’s isolation suites. The doors were supplied with automations to aid infection control and provide convenient, touch free access. The large flush glazed doors facilitated the flow of natural light to the suites and nursing areas. The doors also had Integrated blinds to maintain patient privacy.
