Welsh Government Confirms Funding Agreement For £350 Million Welsh Super Hospital

The Green Light Has Been Given for a New Specialist and Critical Care Centre Outside Cwmbran

hospWelsh Health Secretary Vaughan Gething has approved the construction of a new Specialist and Critical Care Centre, to be built on the site of the former Llanfrechfa Grange Hospital. Laing O’Rourke has completed enabling works through a preconstruction deal. This approval comes after 12 years of discussions surrounding its plans.

Final costs of the project are yet to be fully calculated and agreed with the contractor, however the Welsh Government is set to invest £350 million in the new hospital, expected to open its doors in 2022.

Designed by BDP Architects, the hospital will include a trauma and emergency assessment centre, specialist cardiology, radiology and stroke services, critical care, a unit dedicated to obstetrics and emergency and complex gynaecology as well as specialist paediatric emergency and inpatient care.

Current plans to begin the construction of the 462-bed purpose built hospital are set for early 2017, with completion aimed for 2021. Autumn 2021 will see the opening of the hospital to patients.
