Healthcare building experts have singled out the new Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre as an example of how the design of a hospital can make a difference to patients’ lives.
The fifth World Congress for Design and Health is being held this week for the first time in Glasgow and brings together leading experts in the world of healthcare buildings.
All have praised the recently opened new Beatson, which has been designed with the
wellbeing of patients in mind.
Stephen Baker, the new Beatson Project manager is delighted that the new building has been recognised for its design.
He said: “While expert medical care is the most important factor for patients, good buildings make a difference and patients feel more positive in a modern, comfortable and therapeutic environment.
“We are privileged to have excellent facilities for patients and staff incorporating modern inpatient beds for Oncology, Haemato-oncology, Bone Marrow Transplant and Brachytherapy. Our outpatient and radiotherapy facilities are bright, airy and are designed to make patients feel comfortable and more relaxed.
“Our thanks must go to everyone involved in making the new Beatson one of the top cancer centres in Europe.”
