New Victoria Hospital in Kingston upon Thames has opened its new reception and outpatient suite, marking completion of a £30m redevelopment programme.
The new entrance and reception lead into a fit-for-purpose outpatient facility with increased capacity including 12 consulting rooms, a cardiac diagnostic room, and five treatment rooms.
New Victoria CEO David Marshall said: ‘In addition to the entrance and reception, we have gained a redeveloped outpatient department with more space. Our patients will continue to receive the quality of care we have always provided, but this will now be in a five-star environment. Our staff have continued to work in difficult circumstances during all the building work and now they will be able to do their jobs in a more comfortable environment in purpose-built facilities.
‘The Hospital has been here for 60 years. My vision is to develop the Hospital for another 60 years. It’s recognised as a leading provider of safe, robust health services, and has an excellent reputation. The redevelopment will further enhance our position in the local community.’
The redevelopment completes the construction of The Victoria Foundation Wing, which opened in 2016. This houses four theatres, a new fourteen-bed day surgery unit and a new CT scanner with cardiac diagnostic facility.
