Pathways JLP01_10_26693

West Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester, West Dorset. A view of West Dorset County Hospital from a pathway at the south east, showing a sign to the main entrance.
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 Laing's 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 1980's 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

Laing's Southern Region was awarded the contract for the first phase of a multi-million pound redevelopment project at Mayday Hospital. The Laing Phase I contract was awarded by the South West Thames Regional Health Authority and was to be carried out over a period of three years, with work starting in 1979. The contract included a new three storey surgical block with a linked service block, which was to be connected to the main hospital complex by bridge. The Laing contract also included the provision of a new road between the site and London Road, car parks, and other ancillary buildings. The new surgical block had twelve wards providing approximately 330 beds, operating theatres, an intensive therapy unit, an adult day care unit, and other staff facilities. The services block housed a kitchen, staff dining room, goods reception and distribution centre, and further plant areas
