Rotherham Community Hospital, Rotherham
Rotherham Community Hospital provides GP and walk-in services and also provides modern and accessible facilities for most of the primary care services that were based at Doncaster Gate Hospital.This valuable new health resource forms a well needed contribution to the local neighbourhood and was at the forefront of the Rotherham Renaissance programme.
Located on the old Bestobel site in central Rotherham, the new £9.8m community hospital comprises eight health care departments, a ‘Rothercare’ call centre and staff facilities for 200 staff (including welfare facilities) plus an independent pharmacy. The facilities are spread over three storeys and the clinical provision includes: Out Patients & Walk in centre; Diagnostic Suite; Minor Surgery; Podiatry & Physiotherapy; Ear care, Audiology & Speech Therapy; Sexual Health & Women’s Services; Dentistry and GP Outreach Practice totalling 5050m2.
The site is located very close to the heart of Rotherham town centre. Importantly the new facility has taken a semi industrial site and restored it as part of the town centre. Bailey House Council Offices, civic buildings and the retail centre are all in direct connection with this valuable new health resource which forms a well needed contribution to the local neighbourhood.
