Aberdeen’s Baird Family Hospital and ANCHOR Centre is the largest project to be procured through the Health Facilities Scotland Framework.
NHS Grampian and Graham have had to overcome several budget challenges from major design improvements, and additional cost planning and Covid-19 delays.
NHS Grampian Director Alan Gray said: “’We would not have reached this stage if had not been for the commitment and dedication by our combined projects teams who have faced numerous challenges professionally and who have worked collaboratively to enable the project to proceed.”
Gary Holmes, regional managing director for Graham, said: “The project team has shown outstanding dedication and commitment to get to this point. We now look forward to working with NHS Grampian and their stakeholders throughout the construction phase.”
The Baird Family Hospital will be built on the site formerly occupied by the Foresterhill Health Centre and Breast Screening Centre on the Foresterhill Health Campus.
It will unite all maternity, neonatal, reproductive medicine, breast and gynaecology services as well as a patient hotel and dedicated teaching and research facilities.
The ANCHOR Centre will attach to the existing Radiotherapy Centre and bring all haematology, oncology and radiotherapy day and outpatient services under one roof.
The new facilities will help modernise patient care and facilities at the Foresterhill Health Campus.
