Spire Healthcare has started construction of its newest private hospital in West Didsbury. The state-of-the-art development is due for completion in early 2017 and will be a flagship hospital for the leading private hospital group.
Spire Manchester’s new hospital will be equipped to undertake a significantly enhanced range of services, including highly complex surgery and medicine through a large and fully functioning Intensive Therapy Unit (ITU) together with advanced diagnostic and imagery equipment. The new hospital will also have hydrotherapy, a hybrid theatre and a 150 seat education centre.
Chris Chadwick, Hospital Director at Spire Manchester Hospital, commented:
“Today marks the first step in the construction process for this flagship development, which represents a significant investment by Spire Healthcare. The new hospital will bring new Spire services to the people of Manchester and surrounding areas, plus a focus on research and education. We expect the new hospital to provide employment and economic benefits to the local area from this great new venture.”
Neil McCullough, Spire’s Group Development Director, commented:
“This new hospital development in Manchester gives Spire the opportunity to make a significant advance in its network and reflects our vision to be recognised as a world class healthcare business.
“Manchester is a leading city and we are delighted to be enhancing Spire’s presence in the local health community. Spire has had extensive engagement with our existing medical professionals and we are building a hospital to be proud of.”
