GRAHAM has been appointed to build a new multi-million pound orthopaedic centre at Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy.
The 18-month long project, the largest capital scheme NHS Fife has undertaken since the new hospital wing was built in 2012, will facilitate the orthopaedic department’s move out of the old tower block – it is the last in-patient department housed in the old building.
The end result will be a state-of-the-art facility for Fife patients in need of knee or hip replacements, or orthopaedic intervention.
Scheduled for completion in March 2022, it will boast three operating theatres, 34 beds and an out-patient facility.
Carol Potter, NHS Fife Director of Finance, said:
“The appointment of GRAHAM will allow us to develop our design proposals through to a fully costed appraisal, with the supporting business case due for consideration by Scottish Government later this year.
“We are looking forward to working in partnership with GRAHAM to deliver this transformational project.”
Chris MacLeod, GRAHAM Framework Director, said:
“We are privileged to be working with NHS Fife and its stakeholders in the development of the new state-of-the-art elective orthopaedic centre and in equipping it to offer the highest quality of care to the region and beyond for years to come.
“We look forward to the successful completion of this important project for one of Scotland’s most progressive NHS boards.”
