The centre at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital will provide radiotherapy treatment for local cancer patients meaning that they will no longer face journeys outside of the county for their care.
The new two-storey building will be built with space for five linear accelerators and a digital x-ray treatment machine.
Lend Lease designed and built the original 452 bed PFI hospital on a greenfield site adjacent to Worcester Royal Infirmary’s Newtown site in 2002.
Michael Dyke, Executive Director at Lend Lease, said: “This is an excellent example of our long standing relationship with a major NHS Trust – we look forward to delivering this new radiotherapy centre.
“This latest success builds on the strong start we have made to 2013, in which we have announced the £170m contract to build Kings Gate House for Land Securities and made strong progress on our £1.5bn Elephant & Castle project. We will be putting the first cranes in the air, at One The Elephant, in the next few months.”
Penny Venables, Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust Chief Executive, said: “The new radiotherapy centre will ensure that the vast majority of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments will be delivered within Worcestershire – which is great news for our patients.”
