Independent Practitioner Today has been behind the doors of a new private hospital.
The Schoen Clinic London is about to have its official opening after beginning to admit patients in the summer.
The Wigmore Street spinal and orthopaedic hospital, in the Harley Street medical area, is run by a family-run hospital group in Germany and has been signing up consultants on a salaried service option.
Patients can have outpatient consultations, diagnostic imaging, conservative therapies, surgical treatment, inpatient care and physiotherapy all under one roof.
Spread over seven floors, the new build includes 12 consultation and treatment rooms, onsite physiotherapy, imaging suite with MRI and CT, three laminar flow surgical theatres, a day-case unit and 39 ensuite inpatient bedrooms, including a VIP suite with roof terrace and private access.
Schoen Clinic says the hospital’s design, emphasising natural light and using wooden furnishings and scenery, reflects its belief in the impact a positive healing environment can have.
