King Edward VII’s Hospital opens new outpatient and diagnostic centre

World-class facilities will create a centre of excellence

Independent charitable hospital, King Edward VII’s, has opened a new world-class facility offering diagnostic services and outpatient care. 

The Kantor Medical Centre (KMC), situated opposite the main hospital in Beaumont Street, is the hospital’s latest purpose-built facility, spanning seven floors and with a total of 28 additional consulting rooms. 

Designed by architectural firm, Dixon Jones, and with interior fit-out by Ryder; the centre boasts an impressive array of cutting-edge technologies, including a 3T MRI, CT scanner, two X-ray units, two ultrasound rooms, and two minor procedure rooms.

And the ground floor hosts a waiting area and pharmacy, while other floors are dedicated to expanding the hospital’s outpatient services.

The facility has been developed in line with the hospital’s clinical strategy to expand its offering within musculoskeletal, women’s health, urology, and digestive health.

Kantor Medical Centre will also host centres of excellence in other specialities such as ophthalmology, dermatology, and ENT.

Lindsey Condron, chief executive at the hospital, said: “The hospital has long been committed to providing the very-best clinical care to our patients.

“The opening of this facility marks an exciting new chapter for King Edward VII’s Hospital and represents our largest single investment in facilities since we opened the current hospital building in Marylebone.

“The development of this new specialist centre has been made possible by the support of the Kantor Charitable Foundation, for which we are enormously grateful.

“And this investment in innovative technology will enable us to provide advanced treatment to even more patients.”
