Commissioned by One Healthcare and designed by Manning Elliott, the two-storey facility is being built on a four-acre site near to the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane Campus. Funding comes from Octopus Healthcare.
The hospital will have 21 bed spaces, 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. In addition, it will also have a high tech imaging suite, offering MRI, CT, UD and digital XR scans.
One Healthcare was established in July 2014 to develop and operate private hospitals across the UK. One Hatfield Hospital, expected to open by the end of 2017, is its second of 10 planned facilities. Chief executive Adrian Stevenson said: “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.”
Conlon Construction completed the same developer’s £30m One Ashford Hospital in March 2016. 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.”
