Yorkon completes cardiac catheterisation extension

Lister Hospital development doubles capacity

Offsite construction specialist, Yorkon, has completed an extension to the cardiac catheterisation unit at Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

Its second project for East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, the £4.5m investment has included adding a new storey onto the roof, effectively doubling capacity at the unit.

The extension is made up of 24 modules, which were installed using a 350-tonne crane and provide a second catheterisation laboratory, clinical support areas, control room, preparation and recovery rooms, consulting and examination suites, offices, reception and a waiting area.

Manu Shah, the trust’s lead capital project manager, said: “The expanded facility has been welcomed by both clinicians and patients, who are benefiting from a building that has been specifically designed for this service. The second cardiac laboratory suite is now enabling us to provide life-saving cardiac services locally to more people."

The development secured a BREEAM ‘very good’ environmental rating.
