Spire Healthcare has embarked on an £11m investment programme at Spire Yale Hospital in Wrexham.
As part of the programme, Spire has purchased a site near the main hospital which will now be converted into an outpatients’ centre.
The main hospital building will also be upgraded to include a new operating theatre and recovery suite alongside additional bedrooms for inpatients.
Sue Jones, hospital director at Spire Yale Hospital, said: ‘Here at Spire Yale Hospital, we are absolutely committed to making sure our patients can have fast access to diagnosis and treatment. Investing in state-of-the-art facilities, like our new scanner and increased theatre and bedroom capacity enables us to do this.
‘In addition, the expansion of services at Spire Yale Hospital, already supported by our consulting and diagnostic suite in Abergele, means that patients will have more access to a greater range of treatments at the Spire hospital most local to them. In this way, we can enhance our support for the local community and help address rising waiting lists in North Wales and the surrounding area.’
The new outpatients centre will include a state-of-the-art MRI scanner, relocating current MRI capacity from the existing mobile unit.
The centre is expected to open around the end of 2022 or early in 2023.
