Child Trust Hospital was built in two phases: Phase 1 in 1982 and Phase 2 was completed in 1990, ultimately resulting in a 200-bed facility and providing specialized healthcare services for children.
During the 80s and 90s, hospital architecture began to focus more on patient-centric designs. This includes considerations like efficient layout to optimize patient care, integration of advanced medical technologies available at the time, and attention to infection control measures. Patient rooms would likely have been designed for comfort and accessibility, incorporating natural light and adequate ventilation.
