Pochin’s has announced the practical completion of the new Altrincham Hospital. Pochin’s, working in partnership with developer Citybranch, has delivered the 75,000 sq ft project on behalf of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The £17m build and fit-out, which is to undergo further specialist fit-out before opening, sees the completion of a state-of-the-art medical facility that will replace Altrincham’s existing hospital.
The new community hospital has been in development since 2013, and will provide a wide range of general and specialist outpatient, diagnostic and therapeutic services, including a dedicated haemodialysis unit, replacing the Trust’s previous unit at Wythenshawe Hospital.
Bob Nicholson, Development Director of Pochin’s Ltd, said: “The conclusion of this project marks the arrival of a truly word-class medical facility for the Trust and the local community around Trafford and Altrincham. The delivery of this project to schedule is in no small part due to the close working relationship we have fostered with both the Trust and Citybranch, and we look forward to working with them again in future.
“This is an extremely exciting time for Altrincham as the area undergoes significant regeneration, and this new facility will play an integral part in supporting further developments.”
Steve Mycio, Chairman of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted that our plans to create a new state-of-the-art community hospital for Altrincham have finally come to fruition. This development will provide an expanded range of general and specialist health services in a modern, high quality healthcare environment. We look forward to the hospital opening at the end of April.”
Adam Gross, director at Citybranch, said: ”We’re extremely pleased with the final outcome of this project, which will deliver a vital boost to healthcare services in Trafford. Not only that, Altrincham Hospital will provide support for further development in the area as Altrincham undergoes a period of sustained regeneration.”
