ST Helens Hospital has been named as having the best grounds in the North West.

The company was organised by North West in Bloom competition organised by NewHosptital.

The hospital was awarded one of two gold awards and was the overall winner of the hospital category.

The award demonstrates the consistently high standard achieved by the VINCI Facilities team on site.

Tony Raikes, managing director of VINCI Facilities, said: “This is a fantastic accolade for the team to receive.

“Given the quality of the competition across the whole of the North West it is particularly pleasing for our team to be recognised for their hard work.” The hospital was reopened in 2009.
