Res­i­dents are in­vited to an open day at the new £30 mil­lion pri­vate hos­pi­tal re­cently built next to the Wil­liam Har­vey Hos­pi­tal.

The One Ash­ford Hos­pi­tal, in Ken­ning­ton Road, has been built by Con­lon Con­struc­tion, funded by Oc­to­pus Health­care and will be run by One Health­care.

The de­vel­op­ers are of­fer­ing a tour of the fa­cil­i­ties, free health checks and a chance to meet some of the staff at the open day on Thurs­day, March 3, from 9am to 4pm.

Adrian Stevensen, One Health­care CEO, said: “Peo­ple will be wel­come to take a look around the hos­pi­tal and sam­ple food cre­ated by our on-site chefs.”

The pri­vate hos­pi­tal will have 10 con­sult­ing rooms, four op­er­at­ing the­atres, four treat­ment rooms, an en­doscopy suite, 20 en-suite rooms, 10 am­bu­la­tory care beds and an MRI and imag­ing suite.

One Health­care spokesman says it works with all recog­nised pri­vate med­i­cal in­sur­ance providers and also of­fers com­pet­i­tive self-pay rates.

Sean Con­lon, from Con­lon Con­struc­tion, said: “This hospi- tal has been care­fully de­signed and built to de­liver un­ri­valled fa­cil­i­ties with only the very best equip­ment, ser­vices and ac­com­mo­da­tion.

“One Health­care has a keen eye for de­tail and qual­ity, so we are re­ally proud to have been ap­pointed to de­liver this hos­pi­tal.

“We are cur­rently in the fi­nal stages of the con­struc­tion pro­gramme and over the com­ing weeks will be com­plet­ing the ex­ter­nal works, fi­nal snag­ging and com­mis­sion­ing.

“We are very much look­ing for­ward to see­ing the clin­i­cally cleaned rooms com­plete with fur­ni­ture and equip­ment when we hand over in the next few weeks.”
