7:20am Sunday 10th March 2013 in News
Building work on new multi-million pound operating theatres and critical care facilities has begun at Leighton Hospital in Crewe.
The £22.8million project is being supported by Government funding of £21.69million.
The new building will replace the current theatres, along with the existing Intensive Care and High Dependency units, with state-of-the-art services.
Denise Frodsham, Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust (MCHFT) chief operating officer, said: “These new facilities will allow us to treat and operate in modern surroundings with the most up-to-date equipment, resulting in an improved hospital experience for those members of the local community who require treatment here.”
The building which will house the new theatres and critical care units will be adjacent to, and integrated with, the hospital’s existing treatment centre, and is expected to be completed in early 2014.
