Contractor will build emergency department at New Cross Hospital

Kier has won a £30m job to build a new emergency department at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton.

The contractor was awarded the work under the Procure 21+ framework.

The development will bring all the hospital’s emergency services under one roof in a three-storey building, incorporating a new A&E department, wards and admin space.

Kier Construction director, David Sizer, added: “We are delighted to have been appointed to build this important emergency healthcare facility, which is greatly needed by the Trust and the people this unit will serve.

“We have successfully completed over 100 projects through the P21+ framework to date and we are confident that, by working collaboratively with the Trust, we can deliver excellent new healthcare facilities for Wolverhampton. These will both ease the pressure on the emergency department and enable the Trust to provide even better patient care.”
