Keppie draw up plans for £72m East Lothian Hospital
October 5 2015
The new building will re-introduce key clinical services to the local authority area and expand inpatient bed capacity by close to 60 per cent.
David Small, chief officer, East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership, commented: “These are exciting plans which will see a modern and purpose-built hospital developed, helping improve the quality of care for people in East Lothian.
“Staff have formed a key role in the design layout of the new building, and have influenced the outcome of the proposed plans of their departments and location within the building.
“We have also engaged extensively with over 300 local people, including neighbours close to the Roodlands site and valued their comments.”
Construction is expected to get underway late next year subject to planning approval with phase one works completing by December 2017.
