Works starts on new £68million Sunderland hospital Cutting the first sod for the new mental health hospital at Ryhope, Norman Hildrew

Published on Saturday 30 June 2012 07:02


WORK on a new £68million Sunderland hospital for patients with mental health problems is under way.


A turf-cutting ceremony took place as construction began on the former Ryhope Hospital site this week.

The new multimillion-pound facility will replace the old and outdated accommodation at Cherry Knowle Hospital and Palmer Hospital in Jarrow, South Tyneside.

The 122-bed mental health development facility is being built by Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust could be open to patients two years from now.

I though the blue steelwork was the mental health hosp, but according to the report work doesnt start untill Sept. Also, should the new hosp have its own thread as its a fairly substantial and significant project?

Works starts on new £68million Sunderland hospital


Cutting the first sod for the new mental health hospital at Ryhope, Norman Hildrew


OK . . .

(1) New 'Project Thread' set up, as requested. It certainly looks like a big enough project to be followed from now on, on its own thread.

(2) I have also added it to our Development Summary, as Project 26.

(3) I have added the usual 'project thread' TAG, to the bottom of the thread, so when you click that TAG (on this or any of our Project Threads) the full list of them, with links to them all, appears.

That TAG is Project - Sunderland Area

(4) Now, we need a whole lot more info on here . . .

- Plans and Designs.
- Renders.
- Planning Application links and details.
- Numbers of floors proposed / max proposed height in Metres (see the two 'question marks' in the thread title)
etc.

All the 'usual stuff', I suppose, as well as (hopefully) someone to follow it's physical progress with their camera.

Any volunteers?

Cheers
NH.

I drive past this place a fair bit and construction moving on a Pace.

Quite hard to get photos because of cut down trees lining edge of road, so quality close up shots are limited to where access was.

I was looking for any news regarding the new Hospital, --and came across this, --if anyone is interested, --it's the Medical Architecture,--

http://www.medical-architecture.com/projects/ryhope/
If you view that link there is site updates on there. In the second image, the overview of the site, the curved building, closest to the bypass roundabout has been underway for a while and almost looks complete, does anyone know what it is? Its not part of the hospital, maybe a clinic? Its being constructed by Wilmott Dixon but doesnt have it listed in their projects on their website, its shown in the last two images above and also one further up.

to

New Ryhope Hospital | Sunderland | Various | U/C

Changed in 'Development Summary' also.

New Sunderland hospital building named after hero Second World War pilot New Hopewood Park hospital

Published on 04/04/2013 06:30


A WAR hero is to be honoured when a new hospital building opens in his name.


Second World War pilot Cyril Joe Barton VC saved dozens of lives when he managed to steer his damaged Halifax bomber away from Ryhope.

The 22-year-old was flying back from a raid in Germany when it was hit by enemy fire.

With one engine working the plane limped over Wearside. He flew it clear of the pit village and landed in a field.

Mr Barton died when the plane crashed. Three of his crew members survived.

The central facilities building at the new mental health hospital – replacing Cherry Knowle Hospital – will be named after the hero.

The hospital itself will be called Hopewood Park.

Doors set to open on new £12million Sunderland hospice


Artist's impression of new hospice




Published on 11/05/2013 07:20



HEALTH bosses are throwing open the doors of a new £12 million hospice.



St Benedict’s Hospice will relocate from Monkwearmouth Hospital in Newcastle Road to the facility at St Benedict’s Way, Ryhope, next month.

In advance of the move, South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust staff, which runs the service, has arranged a series of drop-ins during Dying Matters Awareness Week, which starts on Monday.

St Benedict’s Hospice and Centre for Specialist Palliative Care will accommodate all the specialist services currently housed within the existing hospice, including 14 in-patient beds, day care and lymphoedema and outpatient services, as well as a number of community nursing teams and an education centre.

It was developed by the former NHS South of Tyne and Wear, on behalf of Sunderland Teaching Primary Care Trust, in close association with partner organisations.

New £10million dementia care unit opens in Sunderland

The North East’s first £10million dementia care unit is almost ready to open its doors to Sunderland’s most vulnerable patients.


 The 24-bed unit, at Monkwearmouth Hospital, has been specially designed and built over the last five years to give state of the art, pioneering care of those suffering with the debilitating disease.

 Two wards – Roker, for men, and Mowbray, for women – will officially start taking in patients from Cherry Knowle Hospital, Ryhope, on Monday.

The unit was developed as part of the £60million, Northumbria, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust Pride Project, which aims to improve mental health care in Sunderland, and staff are hoping it will provide the highest quality treatment.

If anybody wants any information on the Ryhope Hospital (to be named Hopewood Park)or the Dementia Care Centre let me know and we'll oblige. I've been the project architect for both. Hopewood Park is nearing completion - so everyone involved is getting rather excited about it.
