A new world-class facility offering diagnostic services and outpatient care has opened in London by independent hospital King Edward VII’s.
The Kantor Medical Centre opposite the main hospital on Beaumont Street is the charity’s latest purpose-built facility, spanning seven floors with 28 more consulting rooms.
It hosts a 3T MRI, CT scanner, two X-ray facilities, two ultrasound and two minor procedure rooms. A waiting area and pharmacy are at ground level, while other floors are dedicated to expanding outpatient services.
The facility has been developed in line with the hospital’s clinical strategy to expand its offering within musculoskeletal, women’s health, urology and digestive health.
Kantor Medical Centre will also host centres of excellence in other specialties such as ophthalmology, dermatology and ENT.
Hospital chief executive Lindsey Condron said: ‘The opening of this facility marks an exciting new chapter for King Edward VII’s Hospital and represents our largest single investment in facilities since we opened the current hospital building in Marylebone.
‘The development of this new specialist centre has been made possible by the extremely generous support of the Kantor Charitable Foundation, for which we are enormously grateful. This investment in innovative technology will enable us to provide advanced treatment to even more patients.’
