The centre on Huntley Street will house UCLH’s ear, nose, throat and dental services. It has been co-designed with patients and staff and will bring together services currently provided at the Royal National Throat Nose & Ear Hospital (RNTNEH) and Eastman Dental Hospital (EDH) in addition to other UCLH services.
UCLH’s chief executive Sir Robert Naylor said: ““Fifteen years ago we had a vision to develop a world leading hospital and university campus and this new clinical facility is another major step forward. I am absolutely delighted that this new building will be matching the internationally renowned clinical excellence of the EDH and RNTNEH with a world class building to further facilitate improvements in care.”
Terry Spraggett, director for public sector construction at Mace, said: “I’m delighted that Mace has been appointed by UCLH as main contractor on this significant and complex hospital project, which is challenging both in terms of the construction and logistics of the site. Mace has a strong track record of delivering complex healthcare projects across the UK to an exceptionally high quality. We look forward to bringing our experience to this project and helping UCLH realise its vision to deliver better treatment and care for patients.”
