NHS healthcare furniture at Heatherwood Hospital
Having worked with the NHS for over three decades, our healthline furniture range meets the exacting hygiene, technical and durability standards required. The Heatherwood installation saw a healthcare furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) package which contained 400 storage units, 300 metres of worktops, together with shelving and accessories. The furniture was fitted throughout this 4-storey facility, to rooms including treatment, consulting, utilities, dispensary, operating theatres and orthodontic units as well as patient bedrooms and day case cubicles.
The new Heatherwood Hospital specialises in planned, non-emergency operations for Orthopaedics and Plastics, Ophthalmology and Lithotripsy, with outpatient services for Gynaecology, Urology, Cardiology and Orthopaedics, supported by Endoscopy, Physiotherapy, Phlebotomy and Radiology.
The new building replaces the old Heatherwood building which stood in Ascot for a century. The new hospital has six operating theatres, 48 inpatient beds and 22 day-case cubicles and provides operations, diagnostics and outpatient care to both NHS and private patients.
“Delivering the new hospital at Heatherwood has been a truly collaborative effort and our trusted and local supply chain partners have yet again been integral to a successful handover.”
Louisa Finlay, Director of Clients & Markets, Kier Construction

About the new Heatherwood Hospital
The building has achieved a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) very good status, with a solar farm covering a large section of the hospital’s roof.
10,000m3 of soil was repurposed for the build – meaning no soil was imported to, or exported from the site, plus 95% of all site waste was recycled.
Located in a beautiful woodland setting, patient bedrooms have views across the treetops and have access to outdoor terraces; the café space offers woodland views and there is a large biodiverse pond area and nearby nature walks. This biophilic design approach supports patient recovery and creates a calm and natural environment for patients, staff and visitors.
Sustainability has been fundamental to the project, with renewable energy from a solar farm covering a large section of the hospital’s roof. A robust sustainable urban drainage system has also been installed under the car park. Rainwater from the roof drains into a nearby balancing pool, preventing flooding and will be used to promote biodiversity in the area.
