Major expansion for Spire Bushey Hospital

Spire Bushey ExternalHertfordshire-based Spire Bushey Hospital is developing a new £22.7m medical centre as part of a two-phase redevelopment.

The Spire Bushey Medical Centre, near Watford, is due to open in autumn 2017 and will offer a musculoskeletal diagnostic and outpatient centre, located on Centennial Park.

Alongside this, an additional operating theatre, an enlarged theatre sterile services department and ten more bedrooms will open at the main hospital site.

Hospital director Lisa Trybus said: ‘This is a considerable investment for Spire Bushey Hospital and reinforces our commitment to deliver outstanding patient care.’

This facility will provide 14 purpose-designed consulting rooms and associated treatment rooms, outpatient diagnostics and a second MRI scanner.

There will be more bedrooms at the hospital’s main site and an extension which will be added onto the theatre block – bringing the number of theatres to six – and an enlarged theatre sterile service unit to be created. This part of the redevelopment is due in summer 2018.
