AN INVESTMENT of £150 million is to be ploughed into building new facilities at NHS Grampian’s Foresterhill Campus over the next five years.
The health board has lodged a pre-application notice with Aberdeen City Council for 10 new facilities on the site.
The plans include the state of-the-art Baird Family Hospital, the ANCHOR Centre and a patient hotel.
The hotel will have affordable accommodation which will be for patients travelling long distances and relatives.
A multi-storey car park and a new life sciences centre, which will be shared with the University of Aberdeen, are also part in the proposals.
The plans include the creation of a new Foresterhill Health Centre and a replacement for the existing mortuary.
A green exercise area and extensive landscaping work on the site are also proposed following work to create a therapeutic roof garden at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
NHS Grampian chief executive Malcolm Wright said: “These new facilities will help us provide modern, specialist care right in the heart of the North-east for years to come.”
