Prince Harry opens Sheffield Children’s Hospital

25 July 2019

Prince Harry has officially opened the new multi-award winning wing at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, recently completed by Avanti Architects.  The Duke of Sussex visited patients and staff in the new 72-bed wing which includes therapy rooms, a teen hangout room, four new vibrant colourful wards with artworks by Morag Myerscough, & Avanti’s Iconic central play tower.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is one of only three dedicated children’s hospitals in the UK, and offers specialist care in an environment designed to make the experience of being in hospital less daunting for children who are being looked after.  The new wing is decorated with thoughtful artworks commissioned by Artfelt and offers world class treatment and facilities from the larger scale, like the play tower joining the wards, to the smaller details where every child’s bed has an accompanying fold-out bed, giving parents a comfortable place to stay by their side.


“We couldn’t be more proud to have a facility like this to care for children and young people in Sheffield and we’re delighted to be able to share it with His Royal Highness.”
John Somers, Chief Executive of Sheffield Children’s
