Nuffield Health Project Submits Planning Application
December 2, 2015 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Nuffield Health has submitted a planning application to build a new three-story hospital and wellness center on a five-acre site adjacent to the Manchester Royal Infirmary in Manchester, England.
The approximately $113 million, 131,000-square-foot project will include 30 exam rooms, 60 patient en-suite bedrooms, eight critical care beds, six operating theatres, and a diagnostic imaging suite. A rehabilitation gym with physical therapy will also be provided, set within an integrated wellbeing center located at the heart of the building.
Designed by Pozzoni Architecture, the operating theatres will occupy the main road frontages, with patient rooms and exam rooms configured to take advantage of an outdoor view of the conservation area. The building will be organized around an atrium hub.
The hospital is scheduled to open in early 2018.
