Central Manchester Hospitals and Research Centre

Breathing new life into one of the UK’s historic urban medical campuses

Manchester, United Kingdom

Central Manchester Hospitals represents one of Stantec’s most challenging and rewarding healthcare projects. When the designers first visited the campus they found a series of separate hospitals that had suffered from a century’s worth of ill-conceived piecemeal developments. A major factor in the success of this scheme was Stantec’s strong master plan, which has restored clarity to the site.

The ambitious scheme co-locates four new hospitals – adult, eye, women’s and children’s – under a single unifying roof. Each hospital has its own entrance, sky lit reception, and outpatient facilities. Additionally, there are two mental health centres, eight ancillary buildings, and the retention of a historic Grade II listed Victorian frontage. The campus is organised by a central landscaped boulevard – one of the largest green spaces in Manchester.

Manchester continues its tradition of medical advancements with the inclusion of a state of the art research centre. It is favourably located on the upper floors of the main hospital’s building to promote bench-to-bedside research.

What makes Central Manchester Hospitals all the more remarkable is that it was constructed on a busy live urban campus.
