The £40m private hospital in Hatfield is expected to open by the end of this year following the building’s steel frame now being completed.

Conlon Construction has reached an important stage of the private hospital project in Hatfield, completing the building’s steel frame.

Comprising 175 tonnes of structural steel work, completing this stage of construction means the scheme is one step closer to its completion, with the hospital expected to open by the end of 2017.

The £40m, two-storey facility, called One Hatfield Hospital, will span four acres and be sited on land next to the Hatfield Avenue Porsche dealership.

Commissioned by One Healthcare and designed by Manning Elliott, it will have 21 beds, three of which will be designated for critical care, three ultra clean ventilation (UCV) theatres, physiotherapy unit, 14 day-case pods, two treatment rooms and 10 outpatient consulting rooms.

In addition, it will also have a high-tech diagnostic imaging suite and ample parking.

Adrian Stevensen, chief executive of One Healthcare, said: “We are excited that the steel framework is now in place and our vision for One Hatfield Hospital is coming to life.“

Sean Conlon, of Conlon Construction, added: “With up to 90 workers on site at any one time, the programme of work is progressing quickly and we are looking forward to completing this project which will transform healthcare in Hertfordshire and provide facilities unrivalled in the county.”
