The 75,000 sq ft hospital is being developed on our behalf by
Pochin Property in partnership with Citybranch. It will be
located on Railway Street in Altrincham town centre.
Facilities at the state-of-the-art hospital will include a minor
injuries unit, out-patient consultation and treatment rooms,
physiotherapy, X-ray, ultrasound and blood testing services, in
addition to offices and meeting rooms for staff. The
development will replace the current Altrincham Hospital, which
dates back to the Victorian era.
Trust Chairman Peter Mount said: "We are delighted that
our plans to create a new state-of-the-art hospital for Altrincham
are coming to fruition. This development will be a
significant boost both to local people and the local economy.
Not only will it provide modern, high quality facilities for our
existing services but also an opportunity to expand the range of
clinical care that we provide to Trafford residents."
The new hospital is due to open in early 2015.
