Work has been started by VINCI Construction UK on a new specialist hospital in Birmingham
The new £100m specialist hospital facility in Birmingham, which will provide acute care to private patients in the region, as well as extra capacity and access to specialist facilities for NHS patients is being developed by Prime and funded by M&G, with additional investment coming from HCA UK.
The state-of-the-art 138-bed specialist hospital facility is being built on the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham campus, for a partnership between HCA Healthcare UK (HCA UK) and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust Foundation Trust (UHB).
The hospital will include a radiotherapy unit, and state-of-the-art operating theatres. It will be equipped with the latest technology to provide some of the most complex surgical and medical procedures and treatments across cancer, cardiology, neurology, hepatobiliary, urology, orthopaedics and stem cell transplantation.
This will give patients access to a level of acute private healthcare not currently available to the 500,000 people in the region who have private health insurance or who want to self-pay for their care.
Cabelflow medical supply units providing nurse call, medical gas, power, data and patient telemetry will be deployed throughout all clinical and in-patient areas of the hospital, including all 138 bedrooms, theatres, recovery spaces and day-case spaces, all to provide an HCA look-and-feel across all of its clinics.
