Conlon Construction has begun working on a ground-breaking £40 million Hertfordshire hospital.
The firm has kicked off the 65 week project for the new private hospital in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.
The two storey facility is being built on a four acre site close to the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane Campus. It has been commissioned by One Healthcare and was designed by Manning Elliott.
The hospital will have spaces for 21 beds, three of which will be designated for critical care three ultra clean ventilation (UCV) theatres, 14 day-case pods, two treatment rooms and 10 outpatient consulting rooms.
Furthermore, it will also have a high tech imaging suite, which will offer MRI, UD, CT and digital XR scans.
One Healthcare was established in July 2014 for the development and operation of private hospitals throughout the UK.
One Hatfield Hospital is due to open by the end of next year, in the second of 10 planned facilities.
Adrian Stevenson, Chief Executive, commented: “We are committed to providing the very best care, with outstanding consultants and state-of-the-art, purpose-built facilities ideally located across the UK. With a main aim to optimise patient experience, One Hatfield Hospital has been modelled on innovative surgery and diagnostic centres in America and Australasia in order to provide unrivalled design features, service and technology.
“We are delighted that our vision is coming to life with the help of our contractor and are looking forward to seeing the plans come to fruition.”
In March this year, Conlon Construction finished the same developer’s £30 million One Ashford Hospital.
Chairman Michael Conlon said: “Having already delivered a number of healthcare facilities across the UK, most recently the private hospital in Kent for the same client, we understand the intricacies of such projects and have devised a build programme that will ensure One Hatfield is delivered on time and within budget.”
