Stannah passenger lift chosen for Hospice extension

Stannah continues to support the local community with the installation of a bumper-size passenger lift in a brand new 2-storey extension to the Countess of Brecknock Hospice, a palliative care facility located within Andover War Memorial Hospital.

This is the second passenger lift installed in the hospice, with the first model delivering an equally efficient service in the original premises.

Located within Andover War Memorial Hospital, the Countess of Brecknock Hospice is a specialist palliative care facility that opened in 1990. A Stannah passenger lift already operates in the main complex.

In 2019, a brand-new extension was completed to increase hospice’s care capability. To provide easy transportation around the 2-storey building, Stannah was once again the lift company of choice to supply, install and maintain a 33-person passenger lift.

The new lift delivers safe, efficient movement of patients, staff, visitors and equipment, including beds.

As the hospice is dear to many Andover-based Stannah employees for providing respite care to loved ones, the Stannah Group, which is active in the local community, funded a significant proportion of the new lift installation.

Stannah supplied and installed a traction-drive, 33-person, 2500kg-capacity passenger lift to deliver safe and comfortable movement of people of all mobility levels, including patients in beds or multiple wheelchair users, between the two floors of facilities.

Stannah delivered on every aspect of the project, from initial consultation through to project completion and 24/7, 365-day aftercare by Stannah Lift Services.

A fully accessible, user-friendly new extension to the Countess of Brecknock Hospice, all thanks to the new Stannah passenger lift. And a delighted client, as Michele Gard, Director of the Hospice Charitable Trust, comments:

Stannah and its employees have been generous supporters of the hospice throughout its 30-year history. They provided the lift in the original building and now the new Stannah lift in our new hospice extension will ensure patients can be easily and comfortably transported between floors. We are so grateful for the support of Stannah – a local company helping the Countess of Brecknock Hospice to provide care for local people.
