Land­mark for hospi­tal site

Birmingham Post - - BUSINESS -

A NEW pri­vate hospi­tal in Birm­ing­ham has reached a cru­cial stage of con­struc­tion.

A top­ping out cer­e­mony was held in Edg­bas­ton to mark the mile­stone of the de­vel­op­ment which is due to open next June.

The hospi­tal will be run by Cir­cle Health, cre­at­ing 250 jobs, and is be­ing con­structed on the site of the for­mer BBC Peb­ble Mill stu­dios.

It is said to be the first hospi­tal in the coun­try to pro­vide large-scale re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion for pa­tients who have un­der­gone surgery for mus­cu­lokele­tal con­di­tions or have neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions.

Paolo Pieri, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Cir­cle Health, said: “For the first time in the UK, we will have a state-of-the-art hospi­tal and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre next door to each other.

“Our hospi­tal will have the lat­est med­i­cal tech­nol­ogy, ro­bot­ics and ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence ap­pli­ca­tions to ri­vals some of the best med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties in the world.”
