Mignot Memorial Hospital
opens to patients
08 April 2008
The recently completed Mignot Memorial Hospital on Alderney has been officially opened by the Rev. Arthur Mignot and Deputy Peter Roffey, the Guernsey Minister for Health.
The completed development was praised by all and described by Deputy Peter Roffey as ‘absolutely outstanding’.
Designed by our Cardiff office, the new facility replaces a temporary 1960’s extension and was completed in two phases. The first phase comprising a new build continuing care ward providing 14 single bedrooms, 2 maternity bedrooms and 2 high observation rooms was completed in May 2007 and was officially opened by Princess Anne. The newly completed second phase involved the refurbishment of part of the existing building to provide 5 Acute inpatient beds, enhanced outpatient facilities and a new hospital entrance.
The new building sits at the heart of the community and makes the most of the waterfront setting by maximising the views from inpatient rooms and day spaces providing light and airy rooms for the long term care of patients.
Simon Boundy, Project Director on the scheme, was interviewed by the BBC on the day of the opening.
