October 12 2016£60m integrated health facility to be built on the outskirts of Kirkwall.
Replacing the Balfour Hospital the new facility has been designed by Keppie Design to incorporate a number of relocated GP practices as well as a dental surgery.
Health secretary Shona Robison said: “These purpose-built, state-of-the-art facilities will enable more services to be provided at the hospital, ensuring some of our most remote communities don’t have to travel as far for routine care.”
Following this decision Robertson Construction can now move on-site with the build, commencing a 25 year commitment to ongoing maintenance and operation at the hospital.
