Costing £350m, the hospital offers a 471-bed facility, the majority of which are single rooms with en-suite facilities to ensure that the patient experience is the best it can be. Proposals for the hospital were first raised in 2004, with construction fit-out taking three years in total.
The hospital will offer 24-hour emergency and assessment services in addition to diagnostic services including radiology, pathology, MRI and CT scanners plus and operating theatres. Additionally, a dedicated paediatric assessment unit will manage paediatric emergencies and neonatal intensive care. Serving a population of 600,000 The Grange is equipped with a helipad enabling medical teams to receive or issue emergency transfers.

We wish the 3,000 staff members and, of course, every service-user the very best!
