Cleveland Clinic London is the first foray into the European private healthcare market for the American provider, offering brand recognition and one that will provide comprehensive medical and surgical services, focusing on cardiovascular, digestive, neurological and orthopaedic specialties.
The eight-story, 325,000-square foot hospital is amongst the most expensive hospitals ever to be built in the UK. The hospital will provide care to eligible members covered through all major domestic and international insurers, self-pay and embassy-sponsored patients. The facility itself offers state-of-the art facilities for clinicians and patients alike as it seeks to attract the very best in healthcare professionals.
The new hospital is an addition to a London outpatient facility opened in 2021 and is part of an international footprint that includes facilities across Ohio in the US, Toronto and a 394-bed hospital in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
By opening a hospital in the UK, Cleveland Clinic is bringing together London’s world-renowned physicians and research with Cleveland Clinic’s 100-year history of technological advances and clinical expertise.
The hospital will focus on complex interventional care highlighting transparency, innovation and teamwork into this market that brings a strong physician based governance focus.
The new hospital will follow the model of care set by the US based Cleveland Clinic brand as a physician-led group with almost all of its senior leadership positions occupied by doctors.
The hospital, located at 33 Grosvenor Place in central London, has 184 in-patient bedrooms, 29 ICU beds, eight operating theatres and anaesthetic rooms, 10 bed Endoscopy suite, 21 bed PACU and a 41-bed neurological rehabilitation ward all fitted with bespoke Corian faced Cableflow bedheads. The facility is staffed by approximately 1,150 clinicians.
The hospital will use the latest medical and surgical technology including pharmacy barcoding and robot-powered medicine administration tracking, laser and robotic surgery capabilities and advanced electronic medical records. Cleveland Clinic London will offer the most advanced minimally invasive procedures, such as transcatheter aortic valve implantations, executives said.
