New patient suite opens at Horder Centre

We are pleased to announce the opening of our new suite for private patients at The Horder Centre in Crowborough.

The eight-bed Ashdown Suite has been named because of the hospital’s location next to the Ashdown Forest. It is situated in a quiet area opposite the Centre’s therapeutic garden and gym that has been specially designed to help patients start exercising after joint replacement surgery.

The dedicated private patient wing has been refurbished providing patients with an enhanced level of comfort and dedicated care. They will have access to a special three-course menu, created in the hospital kitchen, using locally sourced ingredients.

Chief Executive of Horder Healthcare, Dr Richard Tyler, who officially opened the suite, said: “This new suite will allow private patients an enhanced experience in beautifully refurbished rooms, where they can recover in total comfort.”

The Horder Centre, which carries out more than 2,000 joint replacements every year, is part of Horder Healthcare, a charity that puts all of its profit back into healthcare to benefit the community it serves.

Private patients can choose from over 20 of the UK’s leading orthopaedic consultants available at the hospital, which has excellent patient outcomes and is rated “outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission.
