Situated off Windsor Road in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, we commenced the new build works in September 2018.
The new Hospice is set in more than eight acres and provides stunning views across the landscaped gardens and Bray Lake.
The building has 28 inpatient beds in individual en-suite rooms and a new Day Centre (the Paul Bevan Centre), offering daily therapeutic and social activities for day patients and inpatients.
External works, including a larger car park, have also taken place.
As a vital part of the community, Thames Hospice will be an unrivalled state-of-the-art facility for the residents of East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.
The entrance lobbies are large open spaces which accommodate a ‘social-hub’ and café.
Low-energy fittings and plant reduce energy use and running costs.
