MTX Awarded Latest Expansion Project at Queen Elizabeth Hospital

MMC healthcare specialist, MTX, is celebrating having been awarded its latest project win at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust.

The brand-new two-storey 1,958 sq. ft. building will house the hospital’s endoscopy facility. Preparatory groundwork is underway and it is due to open to patients in spring 2022, subject to planning permission.

This is MTX’s second project with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, having previously delivered an A&E extension and additional office space.

Through Modern Methods of Construction, the project will support the Trust’s requirements for limited disruption and speed of delivery, allowing the hospital to operate throughout the works taking place.

Nichola Hunter, Associate Director of Estates and Facilities at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We’re pleased to be working with MTX on a new state-of-the-art Endoscopy Unit. It is one of a number of important projects underway as we invest in modernising our hospital to further improve the experience of our patients, their families and staff.”

David Hartley, Managing Director at MTX, added: “We’re thrilled to have been given the opportunity to work with the Trust on the next project at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. This continues a XX-year relationship with them, and I’m incredibly proud of the MTX team, as this is testament to their ongoing hard work and expertise. The new facility will enable all endoscopies to take place in a fit for purpose hi-tech environment.”
