West Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester, West Dorset. A view along a corridor at West Dorset County Hospital showing the decorative suspended ceiling.
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
