Our healthcare specialists submitted a planning application for a £13m new facility to treat mental health patients at The Retreat, York on behalf of Schoen Clinic.
The proposed clinic, a 38,000 sq. ft three-storey building providing 46 beds, is set within a wider 2.46 acre site providing treatment for over 220 years.
The facility proposed treating patients with complex mental health diagnoses associated with eating and personality disorders across three units. The design of the building reflects the heritage of this historic area utilising local materials such as brick and York stone, and the structure has been adapted to protect nearby trees.
Schoen Clinic’s vision is for the state-of-the-art healthcare facility to be set in traditional surroundings, with a sustainable approach to operations. The proposals also include the regeneration of an existing brick walled garden for outdoor therapy use.
