Since starting work in August 2016, work has progressed swiftly on the redevelopment of the RNOH at Stanmore and construction of the new Inpatient Ward Block. The demolition of the old Patient Centre, sorting of the waste materials for recycling, and preparation for the groundwork has meant there has been lots of work in recent months. This has all been captured in a fantastic timelapse video covering the activity so far between August-December 2016.
Construction commenced this week for the expansion of RNOH’s London Spinal Cord Injury Centre (LSCIC) in Stanmore. The service, which is one of only eight centres in the UK and currently provides 34 beds for patients with a spinal cord injury, will be increased to accommodate six additional adult beds.
We're making good progress on the work to build the new inpatient ward bock on the RNOH Stanmore site. The old Patient Centre is being demolished and the ground being cleared for the next stage in the work, the preparations for concrete that will support the earth around the construction site as they dig into the slope leading up to the Outpatients Department.
In a new video, our Chief Executive, Rob Hurd, takes the viewer through the plans for our new inpatient ward block due to open in 2018. The video also features Prof Tim Briggs and includes specially designed graphics illustrating the new building design and where it will be located on the Stanmore site.
The building will include:
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust has secured vital funds to begin rebuilding its facilities.
The first phase in the redevelopment of the Stanmore site was officially approved on 2nd August 2016. Construction will begin on site this month, starting with the demolition of the Patient Centre to make way for a new £40 million Inpatient ward building.
