RNOH pushes ahead with redevelopment plans
The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital has pushed ahead with its plans to redevelop its Stanmore site by advertising for a consortium that can design, build, service and fund the redevelopment.
The Trust has submitted an advertisement to the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), inviting expressions of interest from bidders interested in the Stanmore redevelopment.
Chief Executive Rob Hurd said it was a key milestone in the official procurement process.
“We can now start working formally with private partners interested in bidding to build a new healthcare facility at the RNOH,” he said.
An open day, which will provide bidders with further information about the Private Finance Initiative project, will be held at the RNOH on Thursday, 10 February, at 10.00.
The RNOH’s redevelopment plans include 124 adult and child beds, with embedded therapies and clinical offices, Imaging Department, landscaped gardens, site wide catering facilities, a new hospital main entrance including café and retail facilities.
The bidders will participate in a rigorous tendering process and the Trust plans to select a preferred bidder in January 2013 with construction starting on site in mid 2013.
