ModuleCo recently handed over an orthopaedic surgical hub at Montagu Hospital, delivered in partnership with Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (DBTH), Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (BH) and The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (RF).
The cutting-edge healthcare facility was manufactured to 90% complete off-site at ModuleCo’s specialist manufacturing centre features twin operating threatre suites and a recovery ward. It will officially open its doors to patients mid-January 2023 and is expected to see over 2,000 orthopaedic procedures in its first year.
The modular facility was officially opened during a ribbon-cutting ceremony in late-December 2023 attended by Suzy Brain England OBE (DBTH), Sheena McDonnell (BH) and Kamran Malik (TRFT), chairpersons of each partner Trust involved in the project.
At the opening event, Suzy Brain England OBE stated: “Here we stand in a state-of-the-art facility which is a testament to the things we can achieve when we work together for the betterment of our patients.
“I know I speak for all of my colleagues here when I say that I hope the MEOC is just the first in a long line of such projects – initiatives where we are able to pool our collective know-how in order to provide the very best services for those we serve in Doncaster, Barnsley, Rotherham as well as the wider South Yorkshire region.”
Dr Richard Jenkins, Chief Executive of Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and The Rotherham Foundation Trust, commented: “The Mexborough Elective Orthopaedic Centre of Excellence represents a significant leap forward in our commitment to delivering exceptional orthopaedic care. The collaborative effort between hospital trusts in Doncaster, Barnsley, and Rotherham, demonstrates our shared dedication to enhancing healthcare services in the region.
“This facility, equipped with state-of-the-art amenities and strategically located at Montagu Hospital in Mexborough, will undoubtedly make a positive impact on the lives of our patients. On behalf of all three trusts, I want to share my thanks with the project team, colleagues who have worked tirelessly on this development since its inception, as well as our construction partners at ModuleCo and IHP Vinci who have delivered us this fantastic facility in short order.”
