Cardiac Unit makeover

Share this:

Whether they need complex heart surgery or are born with a heart defect, children of all ages are cared for by the fantastic Dolphin Ward at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Knowing how important the ward is to so many, we’re proud to announce that the finishing touches to the redecoration of its High Dependency Unit are finally complete. The unit is now an underwater oasis fit for – you guessed it – a dolphin!

With a mixture of bays and cubicles, the High Dependency Unit acts as a safe space patients can be closely monitored after having been transferred from the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. After having endured major surgery, it’s vital these brave patients have a comfortable and age-appropriate space to recover in.

We hope that with its bright artwork and fresh new look, the High Dependency Unit will provide much-needed comfort to children going through an incredibly difficult time.

As we strive to make Bristol Children’s Hospital the very best it can be, this project is one of many across the children’s hospital, including a pioneering 3D printer that is already revolutionising cardiac surgery. It’s only with the support of our fundraising family that we can make these projects possible.
