The current phases of our redevelopment plan involve building world-class facilities that embrace the latest technologies vital to the hospital’s ability to make a real and long-lasting impact on the health of children across the globe.
Phase 2 - The Mittal Children's Medical Centre
We are currently in Phase 2 of our ambitious redevelopment programme. Phase 2A, the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building, the first part of the Mittal Children's Medical Centre was officially opened in June 2012.
Our next goal is to redevelop the old Cardiac Wing to create the Premier Inn Clinical building to complete the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre and deliver the hospital's vision of providing modern facilities for all our acute inpatients, where a parent or carer can stay comfortably by their bedside.
Phase 2B – the Premier Inn Clinical Building
The Phase 2B enabling works were completed on time and within budget. As part of these enabling works, a new hospital reception opened in April 2014 following a redesign involving patients, families and carers.
We have also made significant progress with the design of the Premier Inn Clinical Building, and have now appointed the contractors Skanska for the Phase 2B main works. Skanska will be on site for approximately three years deconstructing the old Cardiac Wing and constructing the Premier Inn Clinical Building.
Phase 3A - The Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children
Phase 3A of our redevelopment plans is a new Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children. This centre will be a brand new building in which scientists and doctors can work side-by-side, learn more about rare diseases and discover new ways to diagnose, treat and potentially cure even more children.
