Cygnet Group has opened a new 44-bed mental health facility, Cygnet Hospital Sherwood, in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, UK.
Designed to support men with mental health issues, the new hospital has been opened as an extension to the Cygnet Health Care site on Rufford Colliery Lane, which houses Cygnet Sherwood House and Cygnet Sherwood Lodge.
Cygnet Hospital Sherwood includes three wards – Fern Ward, which is a 12-bed specialist psychiatric intensive care unit, as well as two 16-bed emergency acute services called Bramble Ward and Treetops Ward.
Initial construction work on the new hospital began in mid-2022.
Opening of the hospital has created more than 100 local jobs, with Cygnet utilising local resources during construction and for ongoing service operations.
According to Cygnet CEO Dr Tony Romero, the new hospital will complement the existing mental health services offered by the organisation in the area, while addressing the needs of more people.

The new facility features a full multi-disciplinary team (MDT), including specialty doctors, clinicians, occupational therapists, psychologists, nurses, support workers, and ward, hospital, and clinical managers.
This MDT team is equipped to support the acute mental health needs of adults, including those requiring intensive care.
Addressing the inaugural event of the hospital, Cygnet Hospital director Claire Griffiths said: “We have recruited an incredible team with an array of experiences who will focus on stabilisation, empowering individuals to manage their mental health and preparing them for life back in the community in the quickest possible time.
“The new hospital provides a safe and comfortable environment to enable individuals to achieve outstanding outcomes as well as a successful recovery.”
According to the Cygnet Group, the hospital will provide a variety of therapeutic interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy, schema therapy, eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing therapy, cognitive analytic therapy, psychoeducation, and other occupational therapy programmes.
