Oncology Relocation, Furness General Hospital

Based at Furness General Hospital, DAY Architectural were set the task of re-locating the Adult Oncology unit. Refurbishing an existing medical ward to provide 2 multi bed bays, 4 single beds with en-suites along with all the WC and Ancillary requirements of a general ward.


Due to the sensitive nature of the patients it was critical to provide a calm yet welcoming environment, maintain the Privacy and Dignity and make sure a high level of finish was achieved.


One of the innovations we used for this project was to provide a bespoke bed head. The idea was to angle the beds toward the external window to make the most of the stunning views. The bed head unit also offered some personal storage space and an improved aesthetic for concealing the medical gases.
