LSI Architects: The endoscopy department at Parkside Hospital

The project has extended the department underneath its existing canopy to provide a new entrance and waiting area for the department. It has also expanded and reconfigured its existing patient bays to create separate male and female patient bays.

Storage space and a number of items of equipment and dispensers have been integrated into the joinery to provide clutter-free solutions. This has served to maximise floor area and to make the bays feel spacious but still achieve the required number of bays in a compact space.

The new department successfully achieved JAG accreditation, which demonstrates an Endoscopy department meets a high quality standard in terms of patient experience and how the department operates.

The high end finishes create a new look and feel for the department resulting in a healthcare environment more reminiscent of a hotel than a hospital.
