THE finishing touches of a new multi-million pound health centre are now being added in time for its opening next month.
The £18.6m St Mary’s Community Health Campus, in Milton, is set to open its doors to patients from Monday, December 12.
Major features of the campus include a new Portsmouth Maternity Centre to replace the existing temporary facility and a new GP-led intermediate care ward for 12 patients.
Block A will feature the new main entrance and reception area, health promotion, a multi-faith room, restaurant and an intermediate care day unit community mental health team.
Debbie Tarrant, the PCT’s project director, said: ‘These are really exciting times for the project.
‘A huge amount of thought and planning has gone into providing what we hope people will welcome as the most modern health facilities in the heart of Portsmouth.
‘Although we have had to work with an existing building, it’s like a new build when you step inside.’
