Hydro-X Supports Rotherham Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit Project Array

Hydro-X Water Treatment Ltd, the UK’s largest independent Water Treatment and Water Hygiene company, has partnered with Fortem‘s Northern Management Trainee group to deliver a domestic disinfection project, as part of the renovation of the Special Care Baby Unit at Rotherham Hospital.

‘We are very grateful for the help we received from Hydro-X on this project. One of the main aims was to deliver the project from fundraised money or donated works; such as the support work Hydro-X very kindly provided,’ said Thomas Phillips, Northern Team Management Trainee.

‘We approached Hydro-X as we came to learn it was vital to have a specialised company undertake the domestic disinfection injection. This would help ensure that all the relevant installations were safe to connect to the main water supply of the hospital, and the water was safe from any form of infection such as Legionella.’

Each year, Fortem splits their Management Trainees into three teams – Northern, Midlands and Southern – to complete an annual challenge that demonstrates the company’s firm belief in taking part in social value projects that leave a legacy in the local community. This year, the Northern Trainee Team undertook a much-needed part renovation of the Special Care Baby Unit at Rotherham Hospital; a brilliant facility that supports the local community.

‘The work was carried out to a very high standard, and we would like to thank everyone at Hydro-X, especially, David Bullement, for his patience and professionalism. We encountered many obstacles during the project, which resulted in us having to reschedule the work several times.’

Yvette Ireland, Marketing Manager of Hydro-X, said, ‘We are very privileged to help provide an essential element of the renovation project. As an environmental compliance company, people are at the heart of what we do, and we are very committed to giving back and supporting our local community.’

The project went on to win the Partnership Awards at the Rotherham’s NHS Proud Awards.
