Latest building milestone achieved in the development of Cleveland Clinic’s 185-bed UK hospital
Cleveland Clinic London is pleased to announce a major milestone in the construction of its hospital at 33 Grosvenor Place, when the final external piece of the eight-story, 324,000-square-foot building will be put into place today. The achievement is to be marked by a “topping out” ceremony which will be attended by Dr Brian Donley, CEO of Cleveland Clinic London, Dr Tom Mihaljevic, Cleveland Clinic CEO and President, and Chris Connell, Chief Design Officer of the Center for Design at Cleveland Clinic. Additional guests will include senior leaders from the hospital’s contractor, Sir Robert McAlpine.
The new hospital at 33 Grosvenor Place is Cleveland Clinic’s first facility in Europe, and, along with the first confirmed Outpatient Centre at 24 Portland Place, near Harley Street, will be equipped with the very latest facilities and technology to enhance quality, safety and experience of care.
Cleveland Clinic is also prioritising the reduction of the building’s environmental impact once operational. The building will produce its own heat and power, significantly minimising carbon emissions from air and water heating.
Dr Brian Donley, CEO of Cleveland Clinic London, said, “We are excited to have completed the construction phase of what will be one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the UK. Cleveland Clinic is a global leader in specialised medical care, and our London hospital will enable patients from across the UK and beyond to access exceptional treatment that’s based on nearly100 years of research and innovation.”
Dr Tom Mihaljevic, Cleveland Clinic CEO and President, said, “The London hospital is the latest addition to Cleveland Clinic’s global healthcare system. London is one of the leading international healthcare centres, home to top-quality talent and world-leading research that we can learn from as we look to innovate and provide the very best care.”
Paul Heather, Sir Robert McAlpine Managing Director, London, said: “Building on our 150-year heritage of technical excellence and innovation, it is a privilege to deliver this state-of-the-art medical facility that will provide world class healthcare.”
Chris Connell, Chief Design Officer of the Center for Design at Cleveland Clinic, said, “Once completed, 33 Grosvenor Place will be at the cutting-edge of hospital design, creating an environment that reflects the needs of patients and the future of healthcare in the UK, while ensuring that the building has minimal environmental impact”.
The London hospital will be Cleveland Clinic’s first facility in Europe, adding another international location to a health system that includes a 165-acre main campus near downtown Cleveland, 11 regional hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio, multiple facilities in Florida, a facility in Las Vegas, Nev., and hospitals in Toronto, Canada; and Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Cleveland Clinic London opens in Spring 2021. It will have 185 inpatient beds; eight operating rooms; a full imaging suite; endoscopy and catheterization labs; day case rooms for surgery; and a full neurological suite with rehabilitation. The facility will offer a full range of medical services including specialty services focusing on heart and vascular, orthopaedics, digestive diseases, neurosciences and general surgery.
