The redevelopment will give patients individual bedrooms and build a new main entrance with an adjacent car park and drop off area.

Benenden Hospital will also incorporate MRI scanning and diagnostic imaging all under one roof.

It will expand its physiotherapy area and build modern operating theatres and a new endoscopy unit.

“We were grateful for their help in guiding us through some of the more complicated contractual areas...” - Benenden Hospital's Graham Goddard

Brachers construction team associate Claire Barwick said: “As a firm we are extremely proud to be associated with the ongoing development of this hospital, which has been caring for patients in the region for well over a century.

“Healthcare provision is developing very rapidly, and Benenden Health has worked hard to ensure the hospital offers facilities that are at the cutting edge of medical technology.

“But as hospitals and their equipment become more complicated, so do the legal issues that arise, and we are happy to help benenden health navigate some of the more complex issues so the hospital can continue its vital work.”

Benenden Hospital project director Graham Goddard said: “This is a very significant project for us and it was very important for us to be working with a firm that has such an established practice in the region.

“It has also been useful to have the experience of the senior team at Brachers, many of whom have trained and practiced at large city firms.

“We were very pleased to have Claire and the team on board, as this is a huge investment for Benenden Health.

“We were grateful for their help in guiding us through some of the more complicated contractual areas.”
