Newton Abbott PFI

Ryhurst Ltd is a specialist PFI provider working in partnership exclusively with the NHS and they continue to re-appoint Baily Garner (Health & safety) Ltd  in an extended CDMC role on schemes across the country.
A combination of rapidly changing technology, access targets and public expectations has led to a national review of NHS services and facilities.  Baily Garner’s increasing expertise in new build and refurbishment of health and care accommodation has become a recognised resource to organisations like Ryhurst.  We have experience of all aspects of clinical care including acute and mental health wards. 
Newton Abbott Hospital is part of the integrated Care Network, developed between Teignbridge Primary Care Trust and the local Acute Trust to deliver coordinated services to local communities. It combines a number of facilities.

The site used to be a clay mine working and lies close to the River Teign. Due to its sloping nature and steep embankment the area was in need of significant remodelling to suit construction and provides adequate flood defences.

A new 7,500m2 Community Hospital built on a brownfield site. The state of the art building provides modern replacement healthcare facilities to Newton Abbot and surrounding districts.

The new Community Hospital provides 60 stroke and primary care beds, a rehabilitation suite, outpatients departments including audiology, physiotherapy and podiatry, a minor injuries unit, a maternity unit and an imaging suite.

The finished building incorporates investments such as a combined heat and power unit; sensor controlled lighting and triple glazing. The design maximises the use of natural light and ventilation to conserve energy and maintain a comfortable environment for building users. The completed project has achieved an Energy Performance Certificate ‘A’ rating.

The completed Community Hospital has received Health Investor Magazine's ‘PFI Deal of the Year’ award.
