Hospital at night JLP01_10_26669

West Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester, West Dorset. A night time view showing part of West Dorset County Hospital fronting an internal courtyard, with the glazed facade of the main stairwell lit up from within.
In the early 1980s plans were developed for a modern hospital to replace the old Dorchester Hospital, at a new site to the west of the town centre. A joint venture of Laings South West Region and Haden Young Limited were responsible for Phase I of the construction project, which was to provide 149 beds and included maternity and geriatric units, two operating theatres and a pathology and X-ray department. Phase I on the north part of the new site was completed in the late 1980s under the name West Dorset County Hospital. When Phase II on the south part of the site was completed in the mid 1990s, the whole site became known as Dorset County Hospital
