Based in Maidstone, BMI The Somerfield Hospital is part of BMI Healthcare, a leading provider of independent healthcare with a nationwide network of hospitals. The hospital has 38 beds in total, three operating theatres, three minor procedure rooms and hosts a range of specialist clinics. 

Gradus SureProtect Pureâ hygienic wall protection in White was specified for use in the anaesthetic and sluice rooms, specifically designed for areas of a hospital where cleanliness is a priority, the hygienic wall cladding creates an impermeable barrier to moisture and bacteria and has a smooth, easy to clean surface. In addition, SureProtect Pure offers a tough and durable finish helping to protect against impact and abrasion from passing equipment, trolleys and beds, thus reducing any ongoing repair and maintenance costs.

Dual height Wall Guards were also fitted in the bin store and clean room areas, specified in Chalk to coordinate with the surrounding walls, these were used in conjunction with SureProtect Endureâ to protect the environment from impact damage whilst blending in with the clean, contemporary décor of the newly refurbished hospital.

Connie Stocker, Executive Director at BMI the Somerfield Hospital, said, “We have worked with Gradus on a previous refurbishment project at the hospital and were very impressed with the end result. The standard of service we received and product quality was great, which is why we’ve chosen to work with them again.

“Gradus wall protection systems come in a variety of colours which enabled us to choose a solution which suited the existing interiors and produce a clean, modern appearance.”

Maria Morgan, Product Manager at Gradus, said: “Walls in healthcare facilities, such as BMI The Somerfield Hospital, are vulnerable to dents, scuffs and scrapes as a result of wheelchairs, beds and trolleys. Thanks to our wealth of experience in healthcare environments, we are able to supply products that are fit for purpose and will reduce maintenance costs for the hospital.”
