Simons wins £13m Cambridge private hospital

Simons Group has been awarded a £12.9m contract to design and build a new private hospital for Nuffield Trust in Cambridge.

The hospital will feature 36-bed inpatient and day case wards, an outpatient department with 16 consulting rooms, an oncology department with a five-bed bay and two individual patient rooms.

Simons will also build a diagnostic imaging department with two x-ray rooms, a physiotherapy department, three operating theatres, alongside a staff administration suite.

It will be built on the site of Nuffield Trust’s existing hospital in Cambridge, on Trumpington Road. When the new facility is completed, most of the existing hospital will be demolished.

Director of the Nuffield Hospital in Cambridge Maxine Estop said Simons was awarded the contract because it fully understood the specific nature of the site and its physical context.

“Our patients, staff and neighbours deserve consistent consideration which we are confident Simons will provide,” she added.

Simons said it will work with the hospital to ensure the development is designed and planned to ensure safe delivery with a minimal impact on its services.

Simons Group chairman Paul Hodgkinson said: “We now look forward to working with Nuffield, the consultant team, and all project stakeholders to deliver the vision of a state-of-the-art, world class facility that will improve patient care for this and future generations.”

Enabling works are due to begin in late January and the hospital is due for completion in March 2015.
