The Castle Hill Hospital Cardiac Services Department

2 January 2008


Howorth Air Technology has recently completed work undertaken on a new cardiac and elective surgery facility at Castle Hill Hospital, part of the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. The work was part of a £250m programme of capital investment.

After winning the contract in competitive tender, Howorth Air Technology Ltd equipped the new facility with four Exflow 32 Ultra Clean ventilation canopies and accompanying Howorth eXtension® pendants, servicing the theatres, cath labs, bronchoscopy and laparoscopy theatres. In addition, the theatres were fitted-out with a selection of flat-screen monitor support and stack pendants.

Howorth won the contract after representatives from the hospital visited the company’s showroom – a fully-fitted operating theatre, complete with working Ultra Clean Ventilation systems. In the showroom, they were able to view, test and evaluate equipment thoroughly and at their leisure, without the constraints of visiting a busy clinical environment, and get real “hands on” experience of what it would be like to work within a Howorth operating theatre.
