Stepnell completes Chesterfield health and wellbeing hub

Stepnell has completed work on a new Health and Wellbeing Hub for staff at Chesterfield Royal Hospital. The new building includes facilities such as a state-of-the-art gym, counselling rooms, areas for complementary therapies and group or individual reflections after traumatic incidents.

The building is valued at £2 million with the funds coming from local charity sources. During the work, Stepnell aimed to add social value to the project by investing in the local area. Three locals received jobs through the scheme with more than 100 hours of support going into employment training at Chesterfield College and Parkside Community School.

The company also committed to a local supply chain by ordering building materials within a 30-mile radius of the project, which achieved a 50% local spend, including 36% spend with local SMEs.

Commenting on the completed budget, Dr Hal Spencer, chief executive of CRH NHS Trust, said: “We want to be recommended as a place to come to work and for the clinical care we provide. The Health and Wellbeing Hub is pretty unique in allowing us to offer this kind of facility to colleagues. I am especially proud of us opening on the day of the celebrations for NHS75. Along with our Emergency Department, Pediatric Assessment Unit, the Community Diagnostic Centres and much more, we are redefining the role and abilities of this fantastic hospital.”

Reflecting on their involvement for the Chesterfield health and wellbeing hub, Tom Sewell, regional director at Stepnell, said: “Our team has gone above and beyond to ensure quality throughout the design and build of this new Health and Wellbeing Hub. As well as ensuring the project was built on time and within budget, we were also proud to have supported the hospital alongside local people, communities and businesses to help raise the required project funds. We are thrilled with the end result and the positive feedback received from stakeholders across the project.”
