Stockport hospital undergoes redevelopment

Integrated Health Projects wins £17m contract for new health block at Stepping Hill Hospital

Stepping Hill Hospital in Cheshire is undergoing a £17m redevelopment.

Stockport NHS Foundation Trust has awarded Integrated Health Projects (IHP), a joint venture between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McAlpine, the contract to design and build a three-storey multi-use healthcare block.

The new development will include an acute medical unit, surgical assessment unit and two operating theatres with recovery facilities.

Ann Barnes, chief executive of Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted with the plans for the new development, which is part of our strategic regeneration for Stepping Hill Hospital, and a greatly-improved environment for our patients and staff.”

John Roberts, regional director for IHP, added: “This additional healthcare facility at the hospital will optimise the client’s clinical outcomes and further improve its current services. It is critical that the hospital redevelopment we provide will enable best practice, medical innovation, and of course, the highest standards of patient care.”

The building is due for completion in March 2016 and has been awarded under the ProCure21+ framework.
