New details emerge for Airdrie 'woodland hospital'
August 12 2022
NHS Lanarkshire has shared the latest concept designs for the Monklands Replacement Project (MRP), illustrating how the hospital and associated energy centre might look while the business case is being developed.
The new University Hospital Monklands at Wester Moffat, Airdrie, is billed as a 'woodland hospital' set within expansive landscaped grounds accessible from the planned East Airdrie Link Road.
MRP director Graeme Reid said: "The virtual journey around the campus captures the impressive scale of our major project to provide a state-of-the-art new Monklands which has the ambition to be Scotland’s first ‘digital hospital’ and the first designed from the outset to be net zero carbon for its build and operation.”

Expected to open around 2028, the Keppie-designed campus will offer active travel connectivity to the nearby Drumgelloch station.
Big Auto better hurry up with their BEV revolution for that statement to be even half way credible.
Digital hospital / first in Scotland -- only 20 years behind the times then.
I wonder what the bed count will be -- how much of a reduction has been built into the project financials?
Just at a time when the need for surge capacity / winter wards / growth has never been greater.
How do our hospitals compare with best practice in the EU / US / Aus?
