Quadron snaps up hospital grounds care contract

Quadron Services has won a two-year grounds and garden upkeep contract at a hospital trust worth around £200,000. The contract starts next month.

Heatherwood & Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will benefit from a dedicated team for each of  two hospitals to will carry out maintenance of grassed areas, hedges, shrub beds, flower borders and hard surfaces. 

"Quadron will work with the trust to identify areas for improvement and will treat front areas and courtyards as a high priority to present a welcoming sight to patients, visitors and staff, said the firm’s horticultural manager Andrew Kauffman.

He said he would also work with the board of trustees to look at sources of external funding to further develop areas of the grounds. This could include gaining sponsorship to fund improvements to the hospitals’ courtyards.

Quadron managing director Clive Ivil said: "We are extremely pleased to add Heatherwood and Wexham to our portfolio of health sector clients and look forward to working with the Trust to contribute to patients’ and visitors’ experience being a positive one."
