Pochin's and Citybranch deliver £17m facility
Pochin’s has announced the practical completion of the new Altrincham Hospital in Greater Manchester.
Working in partnership with Citybranch, it has delivered the 75,000sq ft project on behalf of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The £17m build, 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 facility 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, 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.
“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, added: “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.”
