New facilities meet the Health Trust's objectives
The redevelopment of Manor Hospital, Walsall, combines major renewal of the existing hospital - some of which is 150 years old - with the development of new facilities to meet the Health Trust's objectives. These include a move away from inpatient care to more walk-in and daycase treatment.
The new, unified, hospital have 558 inpatient beds, a new state-of-the-art Diagnostic and Treatment Centre and a new Women, Children and Young People's Centre linked to the existing maternity unit.
A new multi-professional education centre provides superb training facilities integrated with the mainstream hospital environment. In addition, a modular ward block containing 136 beds offers the local health community flexibility for future needs.
In October 2012 Skanska ID sold its investment in Walsall Manor Hospital to Barclays Infrastructure Fund for about GBP 17.1 M / SEK 184 M.

Market segment: Hospitals
The new hospital is less than one mile from the town centre and was designed to be a landmark, with greatly improved access for both pedestrians and vehicles. Most clinical services will be within one building, with separate emergency and elective departments. We designed wayfinding for clarity throughout the whole hospital.
The new Diagnostic and Treatment Centre will be accessed from a new main entrance and will provide specialist and generic outpatient services, day case services and operating theatres. The new Women, Children and Young People's Centre will have its own dedicated entrance from the main hospital concourse and will provide integrated care for both inpatients and outpatients with shared diagnostics and operating theatres in a secure environment closely linked to the existing maternity unit.
