A key aim of the conversion of the wards is to upgrade four-bed wards to patient rooms for one to two patients. The rooms will be designed for one patient, with space for one relative to stay overnight, but may also be used by two patients. This ensures flexible capacity in terms of the number of patients admitted.
The new patient rooms will be in light, warm colours, to give the clinical space a more homely dimension. Several new technical installations will also make patient’s lives easier, including adjustable-height toilets. Special windowpanes will give a view to the corridor, but will also be designed so that the patient just needs to press a button to make the pane opaque, signalling a wish for privacy.
The forthcoming conversion of wards at Hvidovre Hospital is part of the New Hospital Hvidovre Quality Fund project. This project also includes the conversion of outpatient clinics and expansion of the hospital by 30,000 m² of new construction.
