The Redwood Centre, Shrewsbury. BAM built a modern mental health village to replace the Victorian era Shelton Hospital in Shrewsbury. The 112-bed Redwoods Centre was opened in September 2012 offering service users the highest standards of care in a far more comfortable environment. The facility achieved BREEAM Excellent rating. It uses natural ventilation, is highly insulated and generates some of its own heat and power.
Early in the planning process for the Castle Rock Adventist health campus, the team developed a series of design drivers to guide decisions throughout construction, with the goals of making the hospital a community epicenter and landmark; embodying the soul and spirit of its site and context; and promoting community wellness and health.

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children the first hospital in England dedicated to children (1830-1880). In the middle of the nineteenth century, most English people still seemed to think that, at this early stage of life at least, nature should be allowed to take its course. Of the 50,000 or so people dying annually in the capital at that time, 21,000 were children less than ten years old.
