Papworth: New Look Hospital Unveiled

The first images illustrating what the New Papworth Hospital will look like have been revealed today.

The £165m project is due to be completed by 2017 and today Papworth Hospital has announced its' intention to appoint Skanska as the preferred bidder to lead the project.

Chief Executive, Stephen Bridge, has said this is an 'important milestone' in the New Papworth Hospital project and takes the NHS Trust a step closer to the move. This is an important milestone in the ten-year project to move to our new site on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. 

In early October we heard that the Department of Health had cleared the business case to be forwarded to the Treasury for approval and today's announcement will move us closer to realising our vision to provide the highest quality facilities for our patients.

The clinical, research and economic case for the new Papworth Hospital is beyond doubt and we look forward to relocating to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus which is fast becoming one of the most vibrant biomedical communities in the world.

New Papworth Hospital and the co-located Heart and Lung Research Institute (a joint venture between Papworth and the University of Cambridge which is dependent upon the relocation of the hospital) will create jobs and wealth in the area and attract leading clinicians and researchers to Cambridge."
