New £4.2m intensive care unit for Pilgrim

Have your say

A NEW £4.2million state-of-the-art intensive care unit is being developed at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital bringing “major benefits” to seriously ill patients and their relatives.

The new unit will feature four single rooms, instead of the existing singular room, and an eight-bay ward, with new visitor areas and state-of-the-art equipment.

It will be housed on the second floor and developed in conjunction with a new endoscopy unit, both of which will open in spring.

The vast majority of South Holland residents are treated at Pilgrim.

Matron for medical services and A&E at Pilgrim Siobhan Sodiwala said: “The old nine-bedded unit was cramped and very much in need of redevelopment.

“This new unit will enable us to meet same-sex accommodation requirements, to better care for patients’ privacy and dignity and also to provide much-improved relative and staff areas.”

“We are really looking forward to having the new unit up and running.

“It will make such a difference and allow my team to deliver the highest quality care to the sickest patients in Pilgrim Hospital.”
