Building Commences on Kettering’s New Day Surgery and Diagnostic Centre

Building has commenced on a brand new state-of-the-art day case unit and diagnostic centre in Glendon, Kettering. The new facility will be an extension of services already offered at Woodland Hospital, part of the Ramsay Health Care group, just under 4 miles away.

The new hospital is planned to open in spring 2023 and will provide services for private, insured and NHS patients within the local community and further afield. Facilities will include two theatres and an endoscopy unit, outpatient consulting rooms and a fully comprehensive radiology department including digital Mammography, static CT and MRI, X-Ray and Ultrasound.

This major development will also create new employment opportunities in the local area, with approximately 150 vacancies in nursing, nursing support, clinical, administration and support services, with many opportunities for training and professional development.

David Munt, Hospital Director at Woodland Hospital will oversee the management of the new facility and believes that it will not only meet the future demands of an ageing and growing local population but also become a community hub. Mr Munt said: “The new facility will be launched at a time when it is most needed.  Woodland Hospital plays a major role within the Northamptonshire community and the additional capacity will allow Ramsay Health Care UK to continue to provide support for the local healthcare system”.

Mr Nick Costa, Chief Executive Officer of Ramsay Health Care UK attended the official ground breaking ceremony said: “This is an exciting opportunity for Ramsay Health Care UK and we are delighted to be building this new day surgery and diagnostic unit in Kettering. With the demand for healthcare services higher than ever, we are pleased to be able to extend and expand services for the local community while also providing employment opportunities.”
