In choosing R Charity as its charity of the year, Hard DaysNight Hotel offers its support and aid to this worthwhileinitiative, which is helping the site to become England's largestsingle-patient room hospital.
General Manager of Hard Days Night Hotel, Mike Deweysays:
When our team met with the redevelopment staff at the RoyalLiverpool University Hospital, we were instantly impressed by theplans for the upcoming overhaul of the site and its landmark £335million redevelopment. The team at the hotel are thrilled to assistthe work of R Charity ahead of the new hospital's opening; theircollective efforts will help aid R Charity to provide comfort andthe very best care to patients in the hospital.
With plans to install Freeview TVs in every room, as well asreclining chairs that allow relatives to stay comfortablyovernight, this is vital work that will provide a high-tech andhomely healthcare space for those who need it. The new hospital isgoing to sit alongside the existing site, and will accommodate 646bed patients at a time, with eighteen operating theatres, aforty-bed Critical Care Unit, and one of the North West's largestemergency departments.
It's support like that provided by R Charity that means thesekinds of projects can happen, and hospitals can go above and beyondeven NHS standards of care. That's why we're immensely proud to beinvolved, and can't wait to see the world-class new Royal Liverpoolup get up and running in 2017.
