East Lothian Community Hospital handed over
October 31 2019
NHS Lothian and East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership have taken possession of East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington ahead of a full migration of patients over the next few months.
The 22,000sq/m facility witnessed the first phase handover of the outpatients department in March of last year. A final phase of work will deliver a car park and landscaping by spring 2020.
Alison MacDonald, chief officer, East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership, commented: "This hospital has been highly anticipated and will bring huge benefits for patients and carers in East Lothian. In particular, it will enable people to have a range of procedures in a brand new, purpose-built hospital for which they previously had to travel to Edinburgh or further afield. "It is also a real asset to the community, with public rooms available to local groups, local radio providing hospital broadcasting and the hospital's grounds open to all. “
The Keppie designed community hospital has been delivered in partnership between Hub South East and Morrison Construction.
The hospital will provide a range of treatments removing the need for patients to travel to Edinburgh
