Modular approach used to create extra capacity at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital
ModuleCo Healthcare has completed a new theatre and ward complex at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham
The two-storey building comprises four operating theatres, a six-bed recovery suite, a 12-bed inpatient ward, and an eight-bed ward and increases theatre capacity in the hospital by 40%.
The work was completed in two phases and utilised modular and offsite construction methods.
Professor Phillip Begg, executive director of strategy and transformation at the Royal Orthopaedic NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Building modular has been of great benefit, allowing us to continue caring for patients with minimal disruption to our services.
“The result is an amazing complex that will allow The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital to treat more patients in a modern environment that meets their needs.”
Alan Wilson, managing sirector of ModuleCo Healthcare, adds: “For us, the scheme is a flagship development, demonstrating exemplary standards that we’ll look to model moving forwards.
“We’re proud that the building we provided represents the very best that the modular construction market has to offer.”
