Cynon Valley Neighbourhood Hospital
Client; Cwm Taf Local Health Board
HLM were appointed in 2003 to Design & Build the £47 million Cynon Valley Neighbourhood Hospital which was completed in 2011.
In response to calls for improved Primary Care and Chronic Disease management services in South Wales, the Cwm Taf Local Health Board embarked on a scheme to focus Intermediate Care on prevention and rehabilitation. This Scheme is seen as a fundamental catalyst to the social regeneration objective for the area, and is paramount in promoting community activity and sustainability.
Located North of Cardiff, the new building provides rehabilitation beds, and numerous supporting therapy functions as well as Women & Children’s services in the form of focused and outpatient facilities. A significant Mental Health unit provides in-patient and outpatient services, as well as a significant community involvement.
The design of the building is focused on patient care through the therapeutic environment – an approach supported by a simple way-finding strategy, a strong landscape integration and a suite of sustainable strategies that include both renewable energy sources and passive climate control. All key design aspects have been driven by flexibility and sustainability
