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
