Bath Hospital £110m Transformation Plans
The Royal United Hospital in Bath has announced plans for a £110m transformation over the next five years. Existing buildings will be demolished and new facilities built in their place including the largest project, the construction of a new cancer centre costing £20m to be completed by 2017. Among improvements will be a new pharmacy building and integrated therapies unit.
The hospital Chief Executive, James Scott said: “We now have an exciting five-year plan firmly in place which will help us to build upon our reputation for the highest quality care. In addition to the money the Trust itself has set aside for these exciting developments, we are also immensely grateful for the contributions being made by members of the public to The Forever Friends Appeal’s Cancer Care Campaign that is raising £8.5m towards the new Centre.”
Howard Jones, Director of Estates and Facilities, added: “The investment will not only cover the costs of the new Cancer Centre, it will also enable us to make a considerable investment in medical equipment, IT infrastructure and extensive re-development of the whole site.”
