New Hinchingbrooke Hospital Redevelopment


Project Overview

Building our new theatre block

Plans to redevelop our hospital at Hinchingbrooke are continuing, with a proposal to create a new, purpose-built operating theatres block located between the main hospital site and the Treatment Centre.

This proposed build, worth £30m, forms the second phase of the ongoing redevelopment of the site and follows the completion of refurbished urgent care facilities in November 2020. The new block is designed to replace the theatres in the main hospital building, which are coming to the end of their operational life cycle. This project is subject to business case approval from NHS England and NHS Improvement.

    Name the Crane Competition Winner

    Hinchingbrooke Hospital launched a competition to name the hospital crane after welcoming the arrival of a huge tower crane to take the build of the new Main Theatres Block to new heights in the redevelopment.

    The winner was Nick Day, aged 39 from Spalding, who suggested ‘Hinchy the Winchy’. Nick was working in Cambridgeshire when he heard about the competition on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s Breakfast Show with Dotty McLeod.

    Nick said: “I was on my tea break and lots of suggestions were being called out on air, so I thought I would have some fun and add my suggestion. I have recently had to visit Hinchingbrooke Hospital, so I am familiar with the site and the crane.”

    Celebrating the final steel beam placed into The Theatres Block

    Construction at the Hinchingbrooke Hospital delivered under the Procure22 Framework has recently observed a significant milestone.

    The two-storey design of the new state-of-the-art theatres block will house 7 operating theatres as well as a dedicated paediatric recovery area, a reception area and a dedicated same-sex recovery area. The future-proofed first floor will have capacity for robotic technology and modern open-plan theatres.

    GRAHAM has collaborated closely with the theatres department to ensure that the redevelopment of the hospital is designed with the patient's experience at its heart.

    The topping out ceremony marks significant progress in Phase 2 of the project, followed by Phase 3’s construction of a brand new hospital in place of the current outdated building.
