South Glasgow University Hospital welcomes first patients
The first patients have begun arriving at a giant new hospital complex in Glasgow’s south side, the £842m South Glasgow University Hospital.

Incorporating an adult hospital and adjacent children’s hospital as well as support services in the surrounding grounds the main building is defined by a full height atrium lined with colourful pods.

Replacing the Victoria, Western, Southern and Yorkhill hospitals, all of which are now up for development, the hospital offers 1,100 bed spaces with most housed in single rooms complete with en-suite bathrooms.

The new hospital, designed by IBI Group as a ‘noninstitutional, hotel-like building’,  was built by Brookfield Multiplex and won’t be fully operational until June.
