Parkhead hospital demolition signifies healthy ambition
June 17 2020
Work to deliver the largest planned health centre in Scotland is to commence shortly following an application to demolish Parkhead Hospital at Salamanca Street, Glasgow.
NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde with Hoskins Architects will take down the current building, which has been closed since 2018, retaining only the existing health centre until the new facility is up and running.
The £64.3m North East Health Centre will unify healthcare to tackle entrenched inequalities and quality of life indicators in the area; drawing together GP surgeries, addiction treatment, homelessness services and mental health care under one roof.
The new-build solution will also contribute to ongoing regeneration around the historic Parkhead Cross.
A design and build contract has been agreed with Hub West Scotland to build the 10,000sq/m facility.
